Kate – the Model Horse for the Gentle Giant Monument

As we celebrate 30 years of the Draft Horse Classic, we’ve been going through some old photos and look what we found! This is Kate, the model horse used to create the Gentle Giant monument that sits at the entrance to the Fairgrounds, participating in the draft horse parade in downtown Grass Valley, circa 1988. The driver is Babs Verdugo with owner Peggy McCollum. Photo by Nancy Burns.
