Junior Hagler loads cinder blocks onto the pony pull weight sled as the competition reaches its midpoint on Tuesday. The sled would eventually weigh over one ton.
The fair also featured rides for fair visitors to enjoy.
Jack Howell displays Spud's specially-made pulling shoes. In addition to competitive pulling, Jack and his father, Floyd Howell, use their ponies to haul timber for their business. "The different shoes do cost more, since they are more difficult to make. Each shoe is made to fit the slope of the individual hoof," said Floyd Howell.

Jack Howell weighs in Spud the miniature horse before the Pony Pull competition at the Boone County Fair on Tuesday. "We weigh 'em in like prize fighters," Howell said. Each two pony team will end up pulling a sled of more than four and a half times the combined weight of the pullers.
