The day I visited, the Belgian draft horses were just arriving
for their segment of the Indiana State Fair.
There weren't as many as I was accustomed to
seeing and was disappointed to not see the great
creatures pulling their wagons and carts, the fittings
of their harness jingling against the sound of
their massive hooves in the show ring's tanbark.
These Standardbreds had raced earlier in the day and
were watching the activity outside their barn
as horse vans arrived to take them to their homes
or to another race track nearby.
