Hi again,when I get the harness sorted out,and the correct size collar,maybe in a few days,or even a couple weeks,as I got alot of other work on the go.
I was wonder where to start,lol.
I've read some of the posts,and find alot of info there!
Some terms I don't understand,like a sand darg,I guess that's like a kind of sled I can put some weight onto?
I think I might make a set of shafts,temperary ones,just for training,or retraining as she's been used for plowing,and hauling a cart before,,,supposedly.
Then I thought I'ld harness her,and hook her up to something like that has alittle weight,not much,and walk her around the garden to see how she acts.
I can tell by her face what she's thinking,lol.
Anyway guys,,,does that sound like a half decent plan to start?
I have some good shafts and an old cart from my brothers barn when he cleaned it out that needs just wheels,I was thinking of switching axles and having rubber tires.But I thought I'ld start her again in something simple and cheap,but safe.
Oh,also,I need a buddy to help I think,,what do you think of my "plan" so far?
Any advice/opinions will be greatly appreciated,thanks,Steve
