Beasts of Burden: Draft Animals at Work

03/28/2015 - 03/29/2015, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Livestock trained to work, such as horses, mules and oxen, played a vital role in the operations of early Texas farms. Whether it was pulling plows, harrowing fields, hauling cotton or cultivating corn, beasts of burden made light work of sometimes daunting tasks. Join Barrington Living Farm and the Texas Draft Horse and Mule Association in a unique opportunity to experience draft animals at work. Various aspects of field preparation using horses, mules and oxen will be demonstrated, with some hands-on opportunities. Contact Jon Failor at 936.878.2214 ext. 224 or jon.failor@tpwd.texas.gov.
