Today Bob and I slipped away and went up to Sandpoint, Idaho to the Draft Horse and Mule Show. It was really fun. This was the winning four abreast competition. It was just awesome. These horses are Percherons.
This was a 4 Up hitch of mules in the farm driving competition. Look at the front legs of the lead team. It is so stunning to watch.

This is the winning team in the farm driving. The horses are from Lynden, Washington which is over on the coast near Bellingham.

This was a lady and her team of Belgians in the farm driving competition. I think she got a 3rd. place.
Somehow I forgot to load my next to favorite picture. It is an 8 up team of Fresians. They were from the Netherlands. They are just spectacular. We had a very fun day and it was good to get away for a while however, I am tired. Our Indian Summer is spectacular and not yet time to pack away the shorts.


  1. I am so jealous! I've been meaning to go to that every year since I moved up here. Gosh, it's been about 14 years now. Looks like a lot of fun! You're gonna have to load and post that picture of the Fresians, I'd love to see it!
