    Thats cool.
    I worked for a old farmer when I was in high school, when he was younger he had the last team of plow horses in the county. He took great pride, that all the other farmers had to call him to pull their tractors out of the mud. He said there wasn't a tractor in the county he couldn't pull out. For a short amount of time horses have a tremendous amount of power.

    Have always really enjoyed the draft horses, photographed a lot of them and almost all were gentle giants. Personally like the percherons the best. Really fun to see them at the shows all tacked up in their show regalia.

    The neighbor at our farm in Vermont used to raise, train and compete with his Belgians. He still trains them for others. Just about all the dairy operations had working draft horses around there when I was a kid.

    Impressive animals, even that mouse(?) in the video got out of their way in a hurry.

    didn't see it the first time, had to go back and watch again. Definitely NOT a mouse unless it was some kind of "draft" mouse (just too big). Had to be a rat of some sort.
