I'm excited, I posted earlier about an Asian Style timber frame building I'm about to make.

We have started training the schools oxen to pull the 32 Eucalyptus trees onto our site. A couple of days ago we moved the first tree. We were basically training our team to handle pulling such a load.
Here are a few pics to show them at work.

very cool..!!! this makes me think of an article I saw many years ago about logging in India using elephants.. The elephants could actually pick up the logs with their tusks and place them where needed...
Oxen may be more manageagle though...
