Just about Finished

I tried my yoke on Fryer but I noticed it seemed to be too top heavy. It would fall over to one side instead of rock back and forth when he walked. I also had the britchen hooked to the yoke and it still looked like it didn't sit properly. I haven't had him pull any implement because I could tell I needed to take more wood off in the yoke seat area. I plan to do this today and try to get a video of Fryer walking in the yoke and pulling something so we can see the bow fall in the shoulder area.
If anyone has some tips for me, please share. My goal is for Fryer to be comfortable so he will be more willing to work with me. Since Breis has passed, Fryer is having a hard time adjusting as a Single Ox.
