First weekend in May, ODHBA Plowing Competition. Pt 3

On Sunday after the plowing contest, everyone hitches up their horses and smooths the ground for planting. Discs, drags, harrows, just an assortment of old iron tools to create a soft seed bed. 
Fay and the team.Didn't get the man's name driving this set up.
The biggest rig on the field, four abreast pulling a forecart and four sections of spike tooth harrow (drag). Three of the horses were Percherons, the fourth with his side to the camera is a Fjord/Percheron cross.
