HORSE AND MULE PULL – The annual Six T’s Farm Horse and Mule Pull held Jan. 21 at the Ned Ray McWherter Ag Pavilion on the campus of the University of Tennessee at Martin proved successful. The event served as a fundraiser for the Children’s Home Inc. in Arkansas. All gate sales from the event will be donated to the home. Ronnie Smith of Sardis (above) readied his horse to pull the heavy load donated by Vowell and Sons of Martin. Austin Jackson of Crointh, Miss., was crowned winner in the single mule pull while Michael McDaniel of Paris was named winner in the single horse pull. One of the event organizers, Mike Turbeville, said the human pull that day was a group effort by spectators. Turbeville reported more than 300 people in attendance and more than $300 was garnered in donated items for the silent auction.
