Horse Logging,
[Return to Topics]

Does any one here do any horse logging, I would be intrested to hear some stories and tips, IM thinking of getting into horse logging as a small business. I think there's an oppertunity for it again, eco-logging on private land owners wood lots, there avoiding the big equipment logging operations like the plague. In my area there might be an opportunity for selective logging/thinning jobs.

Any thoughts ???

You might subscribe to small farmers journal P.O. box 1627 Sisters Oregon 97759 lotsa information in that. Or go to the draft horse show in sandpoint Idaho in october lot of horse loggers there try to find a man by the name of Greg Caudel or Glen French. Or some folks at Southbank B.C. by the name of Foote dont know the address but Southbank aint a big place they are horseloggers.

I havent been for a few years. Been pretty busy with workin at a job and at home ( cant seem to wean myself of that paycheck) But if your intrested in heavy horses its well worth the trip. I dont know if they have a webpage. That family I mentioned in southbank put out a video on horselogging a few years ago very intresting and well done.

CC, zip over to the Tractor Talk board and see if you can get Shep's attention. I understand he used to do some of that up in Idaho.
