The power of two horses working as one was remarkable at the Lorain County Fair horse pull. More than 100 people filled the grandstand Thursday to watch 17 teams compete between the heavy and light weight groups. The horses first had to pull 4,500 pounds and then 1,500 more were added after each team took their turn pulling the sled.
