Windermere Farms also exhibited the Champion Clydesdale Mare. During the supreme champion competition, Majestic Dream’s Gem was shown by Allebach’s 13-year-old son Abraham.
According to a report from the farm show, Allebach said his family has been a part of the show since 1976.
“We make our living from our horses; breeding, raising and training them. My last world champion had seven generations of our bloodlines,” Allebach said.

In 1932, Pressler’s grandfather, J.H.B. Rumberger, bought the tractor used in 1932 in Port Matilda.
This year’s display featured about 50 tractors, manufactured between the 1920s and the 1970s.
A statement from the farm show said, “Pressler’s Hart-Parr is a living relic of a long-gone but important era of farming that fed a growing nation.”
According to the farm show, this is the tournament’s ninth year, and it hosted more than 40 participants from ages 15 to 87 in three age brackets.
Winners of each class received a cash prize and a hat. Pitchers were scored on 30 throws in a preliminary round. The top six scorers of each class continued to a final round that determined the champion.
