  1. Kon - Tiki Kiln

    I am told from the Aussies complete combustion with no "brands". Fines can be used as well as large charcoal pieces as cooking charcoal. No dust!
  2. Breeding Pedigree Shire/Clydesdale Horses

    (No bread rolls here). We have Shire and Clydesdale horses/foals.
  3. Any new small charcoal retorts out there?

    I am looking at the Kon - Tiki kiln. Interesting design!!
  4. Breeding Pedigree Shire/Clydesdale Horses

    Foals doing well. Now starting to have adult coat's so be interesting to see final colour's. (Pictures to follow) Brushing, Lifting feet and starting with head collars.
  5. Kon - Tiki Kiln

    I think this idea developed in the Swiss Alps is fantastic and I am going to source one. Looks like it will allow a use for brash/pallets/saw mill waste and making charcoal at the same time. So simple and cook lunch on it. Folks on here have them and experience? There are some videos on You Tube.
  6. Show your tractors

    Is it possible to source spares for the Nuffield?
  7. Whats the weather like near you?

    Woke up to this view. 10th MAY 2017.
  8. Breeding Pedigree Shire/Clydesdale Horses

    The Stallion "Trojan"
  9. Breeding Pedigree Shire/Clydesdale Horses

    So here are the pictures of the mares and foals. Colts are called Hurricane and Tornado as both born in bad weather conditions and move so fast!! Mares were confused as look like twins.
  10. Ash are late

  11. Bowsaws/Loppers (Bulk Purchase)

    How does Elmia show compare to the APF in stands and content?
  12. Whats the weather like near you?

    38C in the sunshine with brush fire warnings and forecast said snow due next 48hrs.
  13. Bowsaws/Loppers (Bulk Purchase)

    I am looking for a reliable mail order source of robust Bowsaws/Loppers (with spare blades for Green/Seasoned wood) to use with WWOOF'S on Conservation Work. We have used Bahco and Sandvik blades but need current advice on loppers as a load of rubbish around. Suggestions/pictures welcome as cannot seem to find good hand tools in Norge. Thanks.
  14. Breeding Pedigree Shire/Clydesdale Horses

    Us humans take hours to be born and months to walk but these horses are up and about even a little outside fun into the snow. Last night fine. Mare now snoozing beside the foal. I take some pictures when up later on. These colts are waist high to a large human (head much taller) so will be big. 3YRS mare weighs 800KG and will be 1200KG when finished growing several years time. Thanks on the interest.
  15. Any new small charcoal retorts out there?

    Something portable so can be moved between woodlands? I would like to also collect and use pitch.
