2013 Eastern Kentucky

Draft Horse and Mule Association

Spring Field Day

For the first time since 2010, it was a beautiful day for the Eastern Kentucky Draft Horse and Mule Association's annual Spring Field Day at the farm of Mike and Joyce Downs in Olympia, Kentucky on April 20, 2013. This year, the members of the Community Draft Horse and Mule Association were also invited to join in on the fun.  There had been a cold front with about 1/2 inch of rain that moved through on Thursday night and Friday morning, but the ground soaked it up fairly quickly. Saturday morning, however, dawned clear and cool with lots of sunlight and a chilly breeze blowing.  We couldn't have asked for a nicer day to hold an event. 

I had been anxious to get on the road, so I hooked up my trailer and drove down to Mike's on Thursday. I found that Shannen Mannies from northern Indiana had also arrived early. On Thursday afternoon Shannen joined Mike in getting a head start on some of the field work. Friday was spent in the barn getting the horses all prettied up while we waited for the cold, rainy weather to move through. In addition to taking photos at the actual field day on Saturday, I also took photos on Thursday and Friday and have included a link to them below.
