The North Coast Draft Horse and Mule Association presents the 33rd annual Plowing Play Day on Sunday, May 22, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Jack London State Historic Park, featuring historic farming practices that include plowing and mowing demonstrations, as well as free wagon rides around the historic ranch buildings. Enjoy learning about mules along with Clydesdale, Percheron, Shire, and Belgian draft horses.
