Children pet Dan Boltwood's Percheron horses at the BC Interior Museum on Friday

More than 100 people came out to the BC Interior Forestry Museum on Friday for a barbecue and logging show.

They were treated to a horse logging display by Dan Boltwood, Barry Ozero and two mighty Percheron horses named Granite and Smokey. The horses were manoeuvred through an obstacle course while towing two small logs — twigs for these two mighty creatures.

After, Owen Sumner gave a demonstration of a Kaiser Spider Excavator, showing how it could move about using it’s various arms and legs.

A group of logging sports professionals then have a demonstration, showing their chopping and axe throwing skills. They are Timber Days in Centennial Park this afternoon.

Finally, Roy Abbott broke out his collection of old chainsaws, including his hugely impressive 1953 IEL twin cylinder saw that he operated with his son Ernie.

Check out the gallery below for photos. A video will follow.
