Dexters learn some new things.We could hear the thunder and as it got
closer we took shelter in the museum and learned about different yokes how they
are used in different countries etc.
Dick has been to Africa and has antique yokes so we got to
see lots of them.We learned about
“modern” modifications for them as well.
After lunch when the rain turned to drizzle and the storm
has passed we went back out.
I got to work with Marco who is now used as a single. We pulled a log around for a bit.Since they know that we would like to use
them in the garden they are helping me with using both a team and as singles so
I can apply it back to the farm better.
Some of the participants are in the workshop more for general
knowledge and won’t be using Oxen in the near future.
We also got out a couple of the other teams that we had not
used yet.They were more of the younger
teams.After several hours everyone
wanted a break I think.We were all damp
I am coming home with all the yoke plans that we need, and
have ordered the hardware as well.They
are going to have to ship the hardware for me though since I don’t think they
will allow them to go in my carry on.
Now that the others are up, the day will be starting
