Loire: more photos from 2008 – a ploughing contest near Montrichard

On a rare hot summer day at the end of August 2008 we came across a ploughing contest in a field close to the road between Montrichard and Pontlevoy. Most of the competitors had small ploughing machine rather like rotovators with a plough attached, although there was at least one tractor pulling a plough.
