WHO: Eight teams of working oxen from MaineWHAT: Demonstrations using oxen for a variety of activities for the public and RFD-TVWHEN: History Heritage Days, Nov 9-12WHERE: Kentucky Horse ParkWHY: The oxen are expected to arrive from Maine on Monday. On Tuesday, Nov 8 at 1pm, there will be good photo/video/media ops as the oxen will be hitched and going through some practice exercises in preparation for the History Heritage Days events. During History Heritage Days, the oxen will be showcased pulling trolleys, plowing, pulling carts and log haulers. It's a unique opportunity to see the oxen up close, speak to the handlers and learn how farming and logging was accomplished before the days of mechanization. The highlight of the event will be the hitching of all eight teams to the antique log hauler from the early 1900s. There will activities to interest every age group and plenty of time to visit with the oxen as they perform and as they are stabled in the Big Barn alongside the horses. HOW: Media should park in the main Visitor Parking Lot and come through the Visitor Center to the Dressage Complex in back. For more information, see the press release. Questions from the media should be directed to Cindy Rullman, 859-259-4209.
