Lester's Plow Day
When I got there, around 8:30 in the morning, I got the boys yoked up and I took them to the field where Leonard had obstacle courses setup and Lester had the field ready for plowing.
A man, named Lynnwood, came up to me and said I needed to learn to drive them. He thought the boys did such a good job with listening to my commands that it would be fairly easy to use lead lines and walk from behind. As these pics show, they took right to it.
They also plowed, cultivated, and pulled a log thru the course. Jim and Jake were also responsible for returning all the implements to Lester's farm when it was all over. Those Horses are some serious work horses.
The event was a great experience for all of us. Knowing that animal power is still worth the hard work and dedication thrills us all. The relationship you can have with your team can be so rewarding. A nice feeling of true trust and respect for Team and Teamster.
