Ploughman

Trent bought two Belgian quarter horses to add to his pair of Percheron mares last week. This video shows Trent, the Belgians and a kleine kinde on a practice run with a disking machine. A disking machine is design to break up clods of soil prior to furrowing and planting and after the soil surface has been broken by a plow. For real, I am no farmer, but I think it is obvious from the video that the here soil needs loosening.

Dang, those are some hard working horses. I had no idea there were so many steps involved in getting the field prepped for planting.

And here I thought I'd find an article about a lovely sandwich.

Can I borrow them when I work on my garden next month??

I wish I did not live so far away from them myself. I've got about a half acre that I need to turn over. As it is, I'll probably do it with a rototiller :-(
