I watched that right along with you. 2011 was probably the first time in awhile I have missed a PNE.

This is my Sam...

We have ground driven a few times, but he lacks the maturity to do any actual training.

And how bout these cute little halflinger cross ponies?

Training my draft cross to drag things like logs so I can bring them home from our rides to make a cross country course!

I grew up with teams of draft mules (Belgian and Percheron mules) and QH mules being used for farming type work; plowing, planting, hauling hay, etc. We farmed with teams and horse drawn implements up until the mid 90's. Since then, we still keep at least one team around and Dad sometimes takes in teams for training but we don't really work them anymore. We use them for pleasure, nothing else.

These first pictures are back in the days when we still worked them.

This is a team he recently trained.

This is the team we have now...

My dad had always wanted to get into organic farming with horses. We used to work our team, through haying and a little field work, but dad never had the money to get his own farm going. Unfortunatly now, that will never happen, and will never be able to own a team unless they are completly broke to anything. (He was hit by a drunk driver, and now has a brain injury)

The best memory I have of working the girls (May and June) was about 7 years ago when dad and I took them out to load hay and on our way back as we're sittin on the hay rack with over 100 bales, he says "I'm proud of you." Because of that I will again have a team. Partially in honor of him, but also because I love the percheron breed so much from the experiences I've had through our old team.

You all probably didn't really need to know all that, but I guess I just needed to get that out. :)
