Nearly 90 of these gentle giants will make the Murray County Fairgrounds their home for the weekend. Wander through the barns and watch as exhibitors prepare them for the show.
This Saturday and Sunday
It’s  right around the proverbial corner, the seventh annual Murray County Classic Draft Horse Show! The event will be held for two days, July 13 and 14th, at the Murray County Fairgrounds in Slayton.  The gates at the fairgrounds open at 8:00 a.m. both days with the show on Saturday taking place at 3:00 p.m. in the arena on the fairgrounds and the show on Sunday taking off at 12:30 p.m. 

A special tribute has been placed inside the the draftbook honoring William (Bill) Sauer. The Draft Horse Committee unanimously voted to honor Bill Sauer

It seems like yesterday when Bill Sauer walked the barns of the Murray County fairgrounds and commented on the beauty of the big horses stalled there for the Murray County Classic Draft Horse Show.  Bill, a long-time county commissioner, was very much involved in his community through various organizations and he always taught his children, according to son Barry, that giving back to your community was what one did to make it stronger.  He did believe in the draft horse show; convinced it too, could make the County stronger by bringing in people from all over to see the beauty of Murray County.
