If you want to guarantee a crowd of adults with children,
drive up with a van full of draft horses to unload.
The Percherons were arriving for their segment of
the Indiana State Fair.
The oohing and ahhing doesn't stop outside,
as adults stand in awe and admiration as the huge,
amiable creatures are put into their stalls.
Their weight averages about one ton and, if they took it
into their mind, they could get out of their stalls
without too much difficulty.
During the week, the draft horse classes are among
the most popular, as spectators watch Percherons, Clydesdales,
and Belgians being shown pulling carts and wagons
made of two, four and six-in-hand teams.
