Competitors from around the Midwest came to the Boone County Fair to display the power of their draft horses Thursday in Sturgeon. The horses are placed in harnesses and paired together to pull a weighted sled a short distance forward. The winner is the team or animal that can pull the most weight for a short distance. Many of the teams were able to pull more than 3000 pounds more than their combined weight.
