4H Meeting: Took the Steers Out for a Spin

Written by Paul on June 25th, 2012
Summary:

We finally hooked up the steers to the stone boat. They did quite well pulling the empty sled. While they look very similar, they couldn’t have more different personalities. Peter, the off or right ox, is a real worker. Henry, the nigh or left ox would rather lie in the pasture and watch the butterflies. Oxen are typically matched for their color, size and temperament. Now we’ll see if they can pull some weight.
