These Powerful Horses Move Heavy Logs Like They Weigh Nothing At All

Logging operations, especially in areas where you can’t easily access heavy machinery, can prove a real challenge. Despite all of our modern technology, sometimes the best solution is far simpler: horses.

These Belgian drafts are incredibly strong, and you can see their power on full display as they pull and move heavy logs. It’s amazing to see their understanding of their handler as they obey simple vocal cues and do exactly what he’s asking.

Horses can go places big machines can’t. They’re far more forgiving on the land, and they do an awesome job. Is it any wonder that horses have played such instrumental roles in the development of our country?
