As always, good weather was a bonus for the fall plowing match held October 15, 2016. Among those who attended was a couple from New Brunswick who would like to start something similar in their area. We were pleased to hear they’ve been reading our website, and have connected with John, our main plowing match organizer. They stayed for the roast beef supper, like many others. (You’ll see NFHC volunteers getting the meal ready in one photo below).
Judges were Roger Gammon and Budgie Trimper. In one photo, Tom Daniels (in red checkered shirt) explains the trophy which goes back to 1938. His father used to bring it home!
Young Tyler Daniels came with a team of oxen, adding another interesting note to this event.
The intent is to hold the annual plowing match at NFHC from now on, rather than rotating among three locations as was done in the past.
During the match a group of horseback riders from Sweet’s Horse Centre came through (see last photo).
We hope the pictures below are worth a thousand words.
