Welcome to the Working Horses and Mules Website

 
 
We invite you to join us in taking a look back in history to a simpler time—a time when families stayed together, when people knew their neighbors, and when horses and mules worked the ground with man to produce a harvest.
 
And God said, "Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit.  You shall have them for food.  And to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the heavens and to everything that creeps on the earth, everything that has the breath of life, I have given every green plant for food."  And it was so. Genesis 1:29-30 (ESV)
 
The Working Horses and Mules website exists to support the remembrance of the days when farmers utilized horses and mules to plow the land.  To that effect, we promote the United States' and Canada's Plow Day events.
 
What is a Plow Day?  It is an organized gathering of farmers, their families, their friends, and the public to share in the celebration of early farming methods.  The farmers show their animals and demonstrate their skills in plowing as they work together to plow the host farmer's land.  Meanwhile, spectators enjoy a time of fun, food, and fellowship in the great outdoors.
 
Every Plow Day is different, depending on the location, resources, interests, and needs of the local host or sponsor.  Many Plow Days feature plowing by animal power only.  Some include plowing by both work animals and tractors.  Others showcase only tractors.  Entertainment and educational activities also vary and may include music, wagon rides, concessions, games, children's activities, farm tools and equipment demonstrations, animal shows, antique farm equipment displays, and antique vehicle displays.
 
We hope you enjoy our site.  Please be sure to check out our photos of various Plow Day activities, and look for links to upcoming events.
