Alaskan Clydesdale

Only in Alaska....... This guy raised an abandoned moose calf with his
Horses, and believe it or not, he has trained it for lumber removal and
Other hauling tasks. Given the 2,000 pounds of robust muscle, and the
Splayed, grippy hooves, he claims it is the best work animal he has. He
Says the secret to keeping the moose around is a sweet salt lick,
Although during the rut he disappears for a couple of weeks, but always comes
Home.... Impressive!!

That is photoshopped. Look at how both piles of wood are identical - just flipped and the man is about to do up a buckle on a strap that isn't there..

HOWEVER -- moose have long been trained for harness. Unfortunately, they are only good for part of the year. When they are in rut, they are completely uncontrollable. I could find photos... maybe even some in my "old photo box" from our own family history, but it'd take a LOONG time...

Ahhh.. I see the photoshopping now. You can tell around the antlers too.

My FIL lives in Alaska and mentioned something about the fact that they are used in some places.

Did I mention that I have an eye exam next week?

Wow, I would have never noticed that. I got it as an email this morning and thought it was cool.

Yeah it definitely is photoshopped. But I bet something like this could happen, although bull moose are extremely agressive.

Only during the rut. The rest of the year they can be handled.
