THE Hamilton Pastoral Museum will host a Working Horses Harvest Display this weekend to fundraise for the museum as well as providing a family fun weekend.
A big highlight of the weekend will be the demonstration of a 110 year old thrasher on each day at 2pm.
President, Dennis Wheelhouse said a crop was planted in May last year and could be harvested this weekend.
“We use all the old gear and this year we have a lot of draft horses coming from Melbourne to do all kinds of things in relation to the crop, like harvesting and stripping,” Mr Wheelhouse said.
“It is an opportunity for the public to go out there and see a draft horse working and get a photo.”
Mr Wheelhouse said in previous years the museum had draft horses working but it was at irregular times and he did not know when it would happen again.
