Talk highlights true horsepower
The late George Spiesschaert plows his Purdin Road farm with his registered Percheron Draft Horses back in the 1970s (left) and uses a four-horse drill (right) to work land which is now the Oak Hill Settlement just off Thatcher Road in Forest Grove. Spiesschaerts son, Lyle, will help the North Plains Historical Society kick off their 2013-14 slate of monthly meetings with a program on the early days of farming with horses, before mechanization. The meeting is open to all and will start at 1 p.m. Monday, Oct. 7, at the Elsie Mays Community Hall, 30975 N.W. Hillcrest St. in North Plains. Bring your memories to share of years past and join us for another trip back in time, said Carmen-kay Pasley, the societys program vice president.
