The draft horse competition was similar, except the horses had already mastered the going-in-a-straight-line concept, so it was more impressive than entertaining. They were able to pull even more weight than the oxen were, which surprised me. People always use the phrase, "Strong as an ox," but it ought to be, "Strong as a draft horse."
The draft horses' hooves are enormous - bigger than my hand.
Another memorable exhibit was a demonstration of goat milking.

I even stumbled across a couple of people painting the scene:
P.S. Don't worry, I took my kids to the fair the next day.
