I love working my mare in the woods and it were she is the happiest :lol: but I also do some jobs on the farm with her too nothing handier than picking stones with a horse as you can drive with voice commands so one less person needed.

 

and the best bit no engine noise :thumbup1:

 

a agree about sleeping well to :thumbup:

 

They Realy do love to work, they are very versatile working animals they never stop impressing me, and in certain cases quit profitable.

 

They are being used for farm work more and more now esp on smaller hill farms/tenant farms it's all down to this changing world we live in and the total disconnect between the value of money and reality me thinks.

 

And yep no engine noise, no big fuel bills or costly finance deals with the bank ! But very had work :-)

 

Do you work commercialy with ur mare ?

Nice horses..hers my bunch . On front of page they were way young then about time horse logging got on here fast fogotton trade..Welcome to Firewood Logs Atherstone and Warwickshire

 

Cheers mate, good looking pair you have there :-), how's good old atherstone nowadays ? Used to pass throw there regular on the cannal wen I was a nipper, usaly at 5 in the morning lol.

 

Horse logging is making a steady come back more and more chaps like us are switching back to old dobbin, it's bloody hard graft as I am sure u will agree, but sometimes on the right ground our little crew can cover our costs and make a little for the mises like lol.

And the sight of a group of heavy horses crossing the fields in the early morning mist with men, saws and chains is something never forgotten nor the smell of horse sweat and chainsaws. :biggrin: at the end of the day.

 

What made you start with the horses ? If you don't mind me asking.jon

it is a Ulvins combi drag that I put 6 planks on top of there are 35 square bales on it and I could have got a few more on it

 

:001_smile: it's good to see, ulvins gears good stuff, we make up our own arches and trailers then send them off fore hot dipping before putting the "hoss into the shafts" as such.

 

How's your mare do feed wise ? Good doer or food magnet like ?
