Fred, those draft horses look like Belgians, but on a smaller scale. Are they Belgians or just "grade" draft horses? Years ago back in 1976 just married & living in a totally electric house & being a carpenters helper & realized the need for x-tra income. My Aunt, the wife of my uncle Al who won the silver star in Normandy, bordered my property with 30 acres. Realizing my debacle she allowed me to log her property & wanted no compensation. A local farmer boarded me on the East side & I grew up with him & we were & still are best of friends. His name is Kenny & his brother nicknamed "Smiley" . Well these guys are the epitome of " old fashioned farmers!! Up until 20 years they still used horses a whole lot. Anyway going back to 76 & the logging, Kenny said he had a horse that was exclusively used for logging by it's previous owner. SOOO off we go!!! Mainly white pine which was fetching $100.00 per thousand. Not bad for back then. Well I go in and cut and limb what I guesstimate to be 1K board ft & call Kenny. Well the next morning here comes Kenny with this withered old white draft horse that looked older than coal. I showed Ken my loading operation , which was a huge white oak with a leader that I had cabled up for reinforcement. Then we went back to surveil the logs. Kenny told me that this horse, once he learned the route, wouldn't need much guidance. Oh Hell what did I know at that age. Any way Kenny took the horse & told me to stay by the loading tree to catch the horse, while he did the choking. 10 minutes later here comes the horse & a good sized log. Well I'm here to tell ya that that old horse just came back to life, he was doing what he loved!! I stopped him under the tree, and unhooked him & sent him back to Kenny. After that it was redneck precision logging!! That old horse never faltered & wife & I survived the winter. Now the only things that remains are fond memories, & that huge white oak with the cable still on the leader. My God where did all the time go.
