If you missed the horse pull at Duval, you missed some good entertainment.  13 teams competed and the rain held off until the pull was over and the horses unharnessed.   Here are the top placings in each class.  I have put a complete list in the "Competition Results" section.  It has all the information.  It is an Excel file.  Please let me know if this isn't a good format to use.  I'm assuming everyone can open this type of file but I may be wrong.  FYI -- Carnduff horse pull starts at 2:00pm July 1
