Big Red Machines for Ruby Tuesday

On the weekend we attended a horse pull or the termI am most familiar with is a' horse haul' |The contestants, teams of work horses. were required to pull heavy loads a designated distance. Durin the pull or haul I had my eyes on two red tractors which were pulling the heavy sled back in place after it had been pulledby a team of horses. a team of contestantsduring their pull.

This big red tractor had to pull the heavy laden sled back in place after a team of horses had successfully pulled it.

The sled above with its load weighed 6,600 pounds. Each cement block weighed 600 pounds as did the sled itself.The job of this smaller red tractor above was to place more cement blocks on the sled as the competition progressed.

A good day was had by all.

This would be interesting watching those wonderful horses work. Here we have "tractor pulls"....which I don't get real excited about. Beautiful horses.
