Newton, NC June 18, 19, 20, 1999
After a couple of days
of rain, Friday and Saturday turned
out to be beautiful, sunny days. We got there Friday afternoon,
and went back again on Saturday morning. When you first
arrive, you go through the horse barn and are greeted by some
of the most beautiful Belgian draft horses around. Once out of
the barn, you are surrounded by engines and machinery owned
by Big Edd Sigmon.
