Draft horses arrive
January 13, 2014 Categories: Animals
The Haflinger draft horses, Andy and Ray, have made their arrival at Fox Hollow Farm and Chelsea and I have been working them every chance we get! Both horses are 12 years old (late 50s for a horse) and benefit from the frequent exercise, especially Andy who has some joint pain. Today we hitched up the cart and went driving through the woods on some of the farm’s most remote and exciting logging roads. Andy and Ray handle the rough terrain beautifully and we hope to start harvesting more firewood with their help next week. At the Winter Farm Pickup day in February we hope to also give wagon rides around the farm with Andy and Ray’s help. The two young fillies we are also horse sitting, Clementine and Cordelia, will also be on display.
