Logging With Horses

I was just wondering if anyone has done any logging with horses?

My Dad did as a kid. He currently has a horse that he bought from the Amish with whom I think he is reliving his childhood. He uses her all around their property to help with certain tasks. This is a photo of him using her to haul wood to the house for their wood burner.

Hey! That's really cool. I love big drafts and my boyfriend and I have been talking about using horses for logging recently. I think it'd be really cool!

There are a few places in Southern Oregon that still log with horses. I watched a team work about 20 years ago.

Rustic, have you ever seen Rural Heritage on RFD-tv? A lot of the shows are about logging with horses and they're really interesting. The equipment they use is fascinating as well as how well trained those horses are.

I don't get RFD-tv :( I'm sad that I don't...BUT being college students we don't really have the extra money to get it. Thanks for the info though! We have been looking at stuff online and we watched a show about it a couple of weeks ago. (He's a forestry major and would one day like to have his own business..so that's where it all comes from :))

We had a bunch of trees cut down in our yard last spring. Tony used Fras to haul some of the big tree bodys to the burn pile. I don't have any photos. Wish I did, he was really proud of her.

3neighs, that's such a beautiful photo of your dad. I grew up in Michigan around Lapeer and Port Huron. I miss the winter scenery a little bit

Thanks, Vida! I enjoy winter until about Jan. Then I'm ready for it to be warm again. BTW, I love your new avatar!
