A Glimpse of 2019

We tried our hand at the Farm Team Hitch class at the Michigan Great Lakes International Draft Horse Show!
We tried a little plowing at the Zenker Farm Plow Day in April. I had so much fun we bought our very own horse drawn plow and Spring 2020 will be our debut!
2019 Northwest Michigan Draft Horse & Mule Association Drivng School. Haylee helps work with new drivers on their single horse driving skills.
We attended the 2019 Northwest Michigan Draft Horse & Mule Association Driving Show, held at the Northwest Michigan Fairgrounds in Traverse City.
Fergus and Finn also went to the 2019 Driving School.
Fergus and Finn tested their strength at the Bear Lake Days Horse Pull. There’s no way we can really compete with the Big Horses- those guys weigh in at 5000lbs plus, our combined horse weight is only 4000lbs, but we pulled a few loads for fun!
