Draft horses have been bred for centuries to have short legs and muscular bodies that enable them to pull heavy loads.
By bringing a portable sawmill to the logging site, you can process timber as soon as it’s cut.

Often, horse logging occurs in the winter when a layer of snow on the ground makes skidding logs easier.
