More photos from the Great Northern Exhibition. One of my favourite things is watching the Horse Pull. The first three photos are from the "light class" of horses; they were lovely, helped by the fact the sun was shining at that time.
Here are the larger class horses.
Here they are putting more weights on the sled.
The winning pair of horses pulled 8,900 lbs, and they pulled that for well over 60 feet.
I didn't realize that Belgians were originally used to pull lumber out of the bush/forest. Prior to coming to Canada, the only large horse I was familiar with were Shire Horses
