Rep. Zimmerman Claims Victory at Draft Horse Feed Scurry
Pennsylvania Ag Connection - 01/10/2019

This year, the Pennsylvania Farm Show featured a new event--the Celebrity Draft Horse Feed Scurry. Although past years included a feed scurry, this year representatives, senators, queens, former queens, and the Secretary of Agriculture, Russell Redding made their feed scurry debut at the 103rd Pennsylvania Farm Show.

Representative David Zimmerman smoked the competition, winning 1st place by more than five seconds. Representative Mike Tobash beat out Representative Ed Neilson by a mere 0.33 of second to take 2nd place for the evening.

All Feed Scurry teams consisted of two draft horses and two teamsters. Each team was limited to one attempt of the course that stretched across the entire Equine Arena.

All competitiveness aside, the night was filled with good fun, laughter, and lots of learning for the first timers. Many competitors said they plan to return next year with high hopes of surpassing their 2019 ranking.

1st -- 1:09.17 Representative David Zimmerman
