Skidding Wood with Horses

I am having a blast with this new go pro camera.   Here I am using my team of draft Belgians to harvest some salvage blow down pine. These are  logs in my other video that I am sawing for my new machine shed project in the spring.

Very impressive, on all fronts: horses, team, dog, driver, skidding, environmental effect, film, efficiency, etc.

I like appreciate your video and how well trained your horses are, I have three Tennessee walkers that are used for bird dog field trials they have to ground tie and not be gun shy most of the time smiley . Fred

Thought I would add a horse photo, my daughter and me several yrs ago. No logging going on here.

Great phot Fred, I presume you hunt quail down there? I hunt my two English springers for native grouse and woodcock up here. Keeps me very busy most of October. Love my dogs and hunting with them.

Not many quail left in VA NC you have to travel south or west for wild birds and that can be iffy.

I use to love to hunt quail as a kid, but since the blizzard of 1977 we haven't seen or heard a quail here in southeastern Indiana. The only game bird left is dove and a few woodcock.

Never hunt them , but Quail but have moved into this area a few years ago . I've been trying to encourage some of them to move up the mt. here with some luck at least 1 pair have a batch of chicks here for the last few years but they prefer the valley below. I have to slow down for large flocks of them every time I head to town on  a secondary rd. right below our place. Here's one in the back yd. keeping an eye on me.

Love your video.  Feel less than adequate pulling my logs with the tractor, after seeing this!!
