One of Nova Scotia’s summertime traditions.
Many communities and towns in Nova Scotia hold Ox Pulls during the summer and fall. Oxen pulling is perhaps the most traditional agricultural competition still being held at county fairs. These pulls are very popular with fair patrons, not only because they are exciting, but because they are such a demonstration of skill, power and teamwork.
Our son’s wife, Kristina’s Father and Brother have been working with oxen for years!! It’s quite interesting to watch them. We don’t often get chance but the few times we have seen them in action it’s quite something!
It’s Ox Pull season along the South Shore…Canada Day, end of July at The Big Ex, and then varies fairs and Caledonia Exhibition. Good Luck Boys, wishing you a great season!
