“B&W seems to make it look cold and wintery

That is what I thought too, this was taken a few years ago and it was winter time.

“Wonderful pic. i love draft horses

JoAnn drafts are my favorite too, especially Percheron’s.

This photo was from the Draft Horse Pull at the fair. I go every year, it one of the highlights of the fair for me. This team did win, the sled is called a boat, which weighs about 1400 pounds,  the weights are added once each team does a pass, they said each block weighs about 400 pounds. I believe the pass is pulling the load past 24 feet. A little lingo they use, hooking up, the team on their way on the field to hook and pull, on deck, the team next up, in the hole, the team waiting to go after the on deck team. It was down to two teams, the ones that won last year and this team, the weight was over 7000 pounds and it was very close, winning team made the pass and the runner up made 22 feet. They are spectacular to watch, the horses must work together in order to pull. Here are a few more shots…

“Those are some great fair photos. Love the first chicken one.

Gizmo said…

“That first chicken is amazing! The duck (3rd photo) looks like my muscovy’s, but mine are all black…never have seen a brown one before

He was one of my favorites too! If I ever live some where I can have chickens I want one of these just because he looks so cool Smile And I think I could make some pretty nice jewelry from those feathers, well only from the naturally shed ones that is.

Gizmo I wondered what kind of duck that was, I thought he looked very interesting.

Can I just say CRAP! It has been a lonnnggg mentally exhausting week and I am so ready for a day off so I can spend some time with my dogs.

My county fair starts this weekend and I do not have all my stuff ready yet. I entered a whole bunch of categories but I am only going to be able to get my photos ready and hopefully my jewelry. These are the photos I have decided to go with, keep in mind this is for the amateur photography category and I am doing all framed 8X10 size.
