Horse power

Today a local man and his horse came to work in my friends woodland. William had cut all the wood and stacked it.

Then the wood was loaded onto the sled and the horse took them all down to Williams wood pile by his house. It was beautifully sunny and it was lovely to see the horse working. Here he is tightening the wood onto the sled.

A view of the loaded sled.

Here is the sled, swingle tree (the metal bit) where the wood is loaded on and it can pivot around the centre.

Up onto the sled and away they go!

Down at the house the wood pile is growing.

And from another angle...
