Horse Logging on the Homestead

We finally got around to trying a little horse logging and the experience was terrific.  It had all the hallmarks of homesteading; a little hard work, a little invention, time with family and of course....firewood. We'll definitely work towards the right gear and develop some skill at it.  This is not a how-to but more of an encouragement if you've ever wanted to try it, hope you enjoy:



Jeff, Rose and the girls

Beautiful snow... I hear they're using horses in Czech and German forests as a more nature friendly way.
