Spring = livestock and horse exhibition season! This week, we hauled into the Coliseum 90 loads (1,000 yards) of dry clay to create about 7-9 inches of base. This is leveled and packed. (These photos show the hauling and leveling.) Next week, we'll bring in 100 loads (1,200 yards) of a softer, sand-clay mix for the top footing layer. This will be the layer that is dug and dragged throughout...

The Lee & Rose Warner Coliseum hosts “dry floor” events in the winter months and livestock and horse shows during “dirt season” the remainder of the year. This week, in a sure sign of spring, we’re moving from dry floor to dirt. What goes into adding dirt to the arena so it looks like this horse show #FairPhotoMemory from 1951?
