Nice to see these old ways at work. And, I know it is a lot of hard work.

Just an FYI. I came across a blog who mentioned a show on BBC you may find interesting called Victorian Farm - you can find clips on youtube.com. For your long winter days perhaps . . .

Reminded me of my great-grandparents farm...oh to have those days again....so thank you for sharing as we can live a little vicariously through your family. I am blessed to have come across your blog.

I would love to learn to use horses to work my farm someday when my husband and I one day get on the farm. I have had horses since I was young and have always wanted to learn how to drive them. Thank you so much for sharing!
