Team penning, antiques, and…an escapee

A cold, foggy day dawned for my second year appearance at Harvard Milk Days. Fortunately the gloom didn’t keep the crowds away and I had a nice bit of traffic at my booth. This year they changed the format of the horse show from English and Western to team penning and competitive trail riding. I think they had more competitors last year under the old format, but the event this year was still quite interesting, especially when one of the team penning cows escaped from the ring and went directly to Harmilda! As if she could help! I didn’t get my camera going until the cow had already figured out that Harmilda was inanimate and abandoned her, but at least I got them both in the same shot. The resulting roundup was exciting–vendors aren’t used to having a loose cow running about the grounds! I’m going to let the photos speak for themselves…much more entertaining than my wordy descriptions! You can pause the slide show and view it at your own pace, just roll your mouse over the bottom of the picture.
