A picture perfect scene. And the horses are beautiful. :D

A lovely winter scene JF, and such a long descriptive title too :))

Yes I can imagine this being a bit dangerous, at least on modern tractors there is a tilt switch that gives early warning before it is too late. I'm sure Ace and Belle had a lovely walk, as did the passengers. The 'driver' is evidently concentrating too much to notice you :))

Cheers, Amelia

Beautiful Shot, JOY. I thought these only belonged in Christmas songs, The logging reminds me of an old mental patient , who told me he had been sent as a youth to a Canadian logging camp. He got great praise for always being first on the job with his team of horses, but got sent packing after a few weeks when they found out he was not taking the gear off the Horses at night to save him replacing it in the morning,:( cheers scally.
