We have attached more photos of Alfons’ yoke. The five year old Milking Shorthorn oxen are named Joe and Jake. They are hooked to a logging forecart that we fabricate and market as part of our oxen supply business. The horses are six-year old Percheron mare Rosebud and ten-year old black gelding Willy. Willy stands 18 hands and weighs around 2100 pounds.
The other photos are of Wendy finishing the final sanding on the yoke and putting the first coat of polyurethane on it. We now have four coats on it and hope to get the final coat on this week and get the yoke shipped either at the end of this week or the beginning of next week. We are currently expecting 8 inches of snow tonight and another big storm on Friday. Our temperatures are only expected to be in the low teens for the next several days.
We hope you have enjoyed the pictures and process.
