Default Just wanted to say hi

My name is Jordan, I'm a 24 year old marine Corps veteran. I grew up working draft horses on our small 40 acre farm, learning from my dad who has worked the same piece of land out with horses and mules since he was 6 years old, and so small he had to harness standing on a bucket. We have always used them for garden work, logging, hay season, and several other jobs around the house. heres some pictures of us plowing taters out just this sat. I hope to learn plenty of stuff from some of you seasoned veterans, as only a fool knows everything. The horse in the picture is Big John, he is 16.3 hh, weighs almost 2200 lbs, and wears a size 28 collar.

Hi Jordan welcome to the stak and thanks for your service. I am retired army, 32 years combined active and reserve. Thanks for the pictures they look great. It looks a lot of fun to someone who doesnot have to care for the horses on a year round basis and is used to riding my tractor. the most I ever plant is about 5 acres. seams like you would have waste with the control you have with the horse. Bill K

I ment you would have less waste. some how I skiped the word less. Bill K

Welcome to my SECOND home Smokstak Jordan!! I hope you enjoy your time on here. I am 13 and enjoy hearing about the Millitary I thank your kind and honor Service!! I am a stationary Engine, John Deere enthusiast and a Steam Engine fanatic I like to watch steam engines I hope to own a big Traction Engine later in life! I don't really like to ride horses I like them but not as much as iron!! I hope I didn't confuse anyone?


Anyways nice to meet you and BYE
