If I am understanding correctly, a horse logger fells trees in areas that are inaccessible by regular vehicles, and not cost effective to access by helicoptor. According to the news story, he was heading to a job up near Yukon, OK. There is a lot of trashwood in that area, but also a lot of pecan and good hardwoods. I'm betting he's going to fell the good trees and the horses will pull them out to where they can be loaded by truck. It's hard work for the horses, but it looks like he has enough with him so that none of them work more than a couple of hours before being switched out.
