Just got back from horse progress days, where I took a 3 day course in how to drive. We did everything from harnessing to driving with a manure spreader and a disc plough.
Just about every breed of draft was represented, from fjords to Suffolk. Only a few mules though, and only a pair of oxen. The purpose of the fair is to showcase the newest horse implements. They have demonstrations of hay making, tillage equipment, and produce equipment.
If you see my last post posts on here we'll see how little driving I did before I went. I couldnt even harness horse properly. Now I could even drive on my own.
Surprisingly the percherons used for the class only four years old but they didn't spook at anything and they were even doing vocal commands. Is that normal for draft horses?
