Horse logging

Recommended Posts

great set up, those horses look great, built for the job.

 

They belong to a man called Simon Lenihan, he works with his sons, and they are full time horse loggers. Simon is based in The Lakes, but works all over the UK, in fact I think he was on one side of Foulshaw Moss when the skyline crew were on the other.

Crikey, not on The Moss with horses I doubt, must have been in one of the wooded blocks.

Do the Horse Shoes have Cleats on them to help with grip?

Very interesting photos.

 

No, just shoes, you would only really need cleats if working in snow, icy conditions.

They will be what they call the North Swedish, very similar to the Ardennes, as the Ardennes blood was used on them a lot.
