Young Friends Of The Museum; Day 2

Today's theme was horses and the different ways they were used in the past. The children took a ride on a covered wagon after a demonstration on harnessing horses. Edwin Armstrong and Fred Bingham were on hand to share their memories of using horses.

Glen Brebner also demonstrated how horses were used to harrow a field.

After a humorous stop at the cardlock station to "gas up", Glen took the wagonload of enthusiastic young people through town via mainstreet.

After the rides we had a scavenger hunt for the children to go around in the museum buildings to find things that horses would use. After that they learned the different body parts of a horse.
