Oodles of Percherons
A gaggle of geese, a murder of crows, an oodle of Percherons. Well, maybe I just made the last one up!
We made it to the PA Farm Show today and it was insanely crowded. I am not much of a people person and it is so hard to get around with a 3 year old in tow. Top that with a husband that is not as enamored with farm animals as I am and you get a whirlwind tour of the show. Today I'll post some of the photos I took of the draft horses as they were about to enter the arena for the unicorn hitch class (2 in back, 1 in front). Couldn't really take any photos inside the arena, it's too dark and the horses are moving very fast. I'll post photos of some of the other critters tomorrow.
These horses are so gorgeous and I was surprised how geared up they were to go into the ring. One horse reared up and fell down on the pavement. You could almost feel the ground shake when they trotted past. My daughter loved the silver on the harness and the colorful ribbons in their manes and tails.
Let me know what photo is your favorite!
