The Draft Horse Pulls! These are always held on the opening Saturday of the Wayne Co. Fair. Very exciting to see so much horsepower ready to GO at the drop of a hat! & scary too; the team backs up, all tense with anticipation, the tree is dropped, & they PULL! If the tree misses the hook they go anyway; I've seen a team spook & bolt because they tree didn't hook, & I have heard of fingers getting lost if they get caught by the tree when the horses go.
Still amazing to watch, even if it's scary!
They pull in divisions of Lightweight & Heavyweaight; you can SEE the difference between the lights & heavies.
