Saturday will be aimed more at the general public, with lots to see including timber framing, plowing and other field work, logging, horseshoeing, teamster round tables, wagon rides, activities for kids of all ages, and many types of demonstrations of effective usage of draft animals. Saturday evening will feature an auction and raffle draw where some lucky person will walk away with a free draft horse or $500 cash!! Sunday will be a full day of activities and fun, similar to the program on Saturday.

The Draft Animal Power Network is a non-profit organization of full and part-time farmers, foresters, loggers, teamsters, animal owners, homesteaders, land owners, and folks interested in learning more about any of these activities.  Not only are there still people using animals for power, but there are many that do it for a living or to support their families’ lifestyle in a kind and sustainable manner.

Their goal is to highlight ongoing efforts of people throughout the region who are educating, mentoring and building community around animal-power and renewable land use, providing opportunities for education & networking throughout the year.
