The J. T. Hoggard and Roger Manning Plow Day in Windsor, North Carolina, (actually Askewville), was a well attended event. Visitors were able to enjoy wagon rides, watch the horses at work, and ride with the teamsters. Corn was planted using a 4 row corn planter and pulled by 4 horses. A quilting demonstration was held at the same time.
Although this next event, Mt. Hermon Plow Days, is not a sponsored NCWHMA event, several of our members will be traveling to Salisbury, Maryland to participate. Teamsters from Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, and possibly from other states, will be there.
