    When We Farmed with Horses part 1

    This film focuses on the draft horse, around which agricultural practices of the Midwest developed in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Comments on the evolution of equipment, seasonal activities, and the combination of frustrations and pride in workmanship which characterized farming during that period.

    Only in Alaska....... This guy raised an abandoned moose calf with his horses, and believe it or not, he has trained it for lumber removal and other hauling tasks. Given the 2,000 pounds of robust muscle, and the splayed, grippy hooves, he claims it is the best work animal he has. He says the secret to keeping the moose around is a sweet salt lick, although during the rut he disappears for a couple of weeks, but always comes home.... impressive!

    I was searching for Dick Sparrow's 40 horse team and didn't have any luck till I found this and Dick is the one driving this team in the parade.Many will recall seeing Dick's teams and articles in the 70's with his big team.
