finishing up 9" yoke

I came close to finishing my 9" yoke yesterday. I got close enough to try it on the boys to at least see if I was going in the right direction. It was a huge improvement over the 8.5" yoke they were wearing. I could tell they were much more comfortable. They lowered their heads perfectly when pulling and they seemed calmer when walking together. They were not trying to rush like I have noticed in the past.

I still need to continue to round down the seats and treat the wood with linseed oil but I think I am ready to start getting the boys in shape for the farm tour. This year the 2015 Farm Tour is April 25th and 26th from 2 to 6 on both days. I hope you all can come out and have a fun time with us.
