STILL A WILLING WORKER

 

The Draft Horse Continues To Play A Role In Modern Agriculture

Draft horses continue to play a role in logging. In selective tree harvesting, horses are much more practical than tractors for removing the downed trees and, ecologically, they do considerably less damage to forest floors, work quietly, and don’t pollute the air.

Above and beyond practical considerations, working with draft horses, either for pleasure or profit, offers men and women the intangible experience of working with a thinking, breathing animal who has served them faithfully for hundreds of years.
