The Strength Of The Draft Horse


Plowing Contest at UConn in Storrs, CT.
The Halflingers from Voluntown

On Apr. 16 I was invited to the annual Eastern Connecticut Drafthorse Assoc. plowing competition held at Uconn every year.  This years participants consisited of 7 teams.  This halflinger team was small in comparison to some of the others, but they were very spirted.  These two had the most attitude of all of the horses.  You couldn't help but love them..  More photos can be found at my website:  J.
