“Elgin County Plowing Match Collection” – 2009
This painting is part of my 2009 Elgin County Plowing Match Collection. The county held their match in 2009 at the farms of Tom Bradish near Talbotville.
Dave and I got up and hurried through breakfast and gathered our cameras and loaded my scooter. We were off and what a fine day it was. The turn out of plowmen was excellent. This coach – Dad was very focused on his son’s plowing. It’s great to see two or more generations that share an interest in Plowing. A real study in country blue or is that Ford Blue?
We had a wonderful day. 2010’s county match was held on Sparta Line in August. We went for an hour but then had to leave to get to Milton for the heavy horse event at the Country Heritage Park, but that’s another story. I loved both the antique horse plowing and the many and varied antique tractors and plows. Such an assortment to please any and all fans particular fancy!
