Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting Cailen Campbell and Chloe Lieberman from Asheville. I introduced Fryer and yoked him up for a demonstration of his skills. My new friends took a ride on Fryer's fore cart and asked questions on his training because they too are planning on training steers to become oxen on their farm for draft animal power.
It was so inspiring for me to have the opportunity to speak to new folks about what I have been doing with Fryer on our farm here at Chapel Hill Creamery. I really need to do more. And having others keep me on my toes, makes me want to spend more time with Fryer and accomplish jobs on the farm that are perfect for a single ox. Thank you Cailen and Chloe. I look forward to seeing and hearing all about your future oxen. I will keep in touch on workshops that will be coming up soon.
