Last weekend was Columbus day - a three day weekend for schools and maybe Government employees ( I'm not sure). Anyway, it was a glorious weekend, perfect shirt sleeve weather, clear blue sky, you just had to get out and enjoy because you know that this weather cannot last much longer. This is also the weekend for the Riverton fair, the last fair of the season around here. It is a small fair that manages to pack in the chickens, bunnies, canned goods and Draft Pony pulls. (my favorites!) I love these little guys, they have such heart, they are so animated, and wide as they are short. I go year after year whether it is cold or hot to sit on those narrow pine bleachers, eat fried dough pizza and enjoy the day. I had my seat, my camera and food and we waited........and waited...... Unfortunatly there was a conflict this year and there was a Horse drawing event up in New Hamshire, so only one team showed up. They did three pulls for us and I took as many photos as I could, but what could they do. The above pen and ink drawing is from a couple of years ago.
