Spring Plowing Days - Malabar Farm
Sunday, May 17, 2009
10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Presented By: Malabar Farm
Malabar Farm's Spring Plowing Days event features the beautiful and majestic draft animals which once were the mainstay of farming in early Ohio. The setting for this event is the rich rolling countryside of Pleasant Valley where agriculture has played an important role since the 1820's. Malabar Farm State Park and the Central Ohio Draft Horse Association will once again host Annual Spring Plowing Days. This event will feature teamsters and draft teams testing their skills in competition. All competitors must be members of the Central Ohio Draft Horse Association. This is just one of the events where Malabar offers visitors the chance to reflect on and experience many things which have changed as well as a few which have stayed the same. Sunday's events include adult classes for men and women in the box-wagon obstacle course. The log skidding contest begins at 11 AM and the weekend's activities wrap up with the fun pull. Teamsters pit the strength of their teams against their competition to see which team can pull the greatest load over a distance of 25 feet.
