Past comes alive
THE Korumburra Working Horse and Tractor Rally was held at Morrison Park in Nyora at the weekend, showcasing tractors, working horses and old fashioned machinery.
Originally held in 1991 as a one off farming display, its popularity at that first event was enough to prompt a repeat event in 1993.
Up until 2004, the rally ran every two years but is now an annual event attracting large numbers of exhibitors and visitors.
At the rally, there is a wide variety of displays, including a large display of vintage and veteran tractors, tractors working many different implements as well as the popular vintage tractor pull.
A regular addition to the tractor compound is the vintage/veteran earth moving machinery display with bulldozers, graders, rollers and other related items working and forming the earth.
The working horses and their drivers working the way it was done before tractors form a big part of the rally.
They demonstrated ploughing, sweeping and stacking hay, and pulling wagons, carts and sleds across the weekend.
