Horses to Horsepower
Following our highly successful day last year, Stratford and District Historical Society, again presents Horses to Horsepower.
This will be held Sunday 20 October 2013 at Pine Lodge Reserve, Llowalong Road, Stratford, from 10am to 4pm.
The displays and demonstrations of Gippsland farming practices of yesteryear will include working horses ploughing and harrowing, display of harness horses and restored carriages. The vintage tractors will also be returning. These are complemented by demonstrations of working yard dogs, with cross cut sawing and wood chopping, sheep shearing (blade and modern) wool spinning and heritage knitting.
A feature will be hand milking and cheese making demonstrations.
Morning and afternoon teas will be available, plus a light lunch and BBQ, all in a relaxing atmosphere to reminisce. Entry is $5 a head with primary students free, for a wonderful, family-friendly day.
