Ever do a chore so tedious you start pretending and saying to yourself, "This should be an Olympic Event!." Well, that is just what Jada Haas did. Jada is a freelance farmhand in Hartland Vermont and many times thought that things she did around the farm should qualify as an Olympic Event.

Fast forward the present, a Winter Olympic Year and to Hartland finally getting a 4-H group, The Hartland Cattle Club and you get the Winter Farm Olympics held this past weekend at Cedar Mountain Farm.

The events included:
Cow Pie Slapshot
Round Hay Bale Races
Cabbage Bowling
Wheelbarrow in the Snow Races
Hay Bale Races
Pin the Tail on the Cow

In addition to all the outdoor fun, a chili luncheon was held as a fundraiser for the 4-H club with suggested donations of $10 for the all-you-can-eat meal.

All in all a great way to spend a Winter Saturday!
