‘Beautiful, rare thing’

Dear Editor:

RE: Logging with horses: heritage meets hard work, Feb. 25.

I certainly enjoyed the article about the Bartram horses logging in Puslinch last winter.

I spend a lot of time in Little’s Tract and one afternoon I managed to catch the team there. They  were being loaded in the trailer at the end of the day.  To say they disturbed the forest floor very little was certainly true; you could barely tell they had been in and around the trails at all.

The photo shows them moving past the felled trees they had skid out to the parking lot. Many times I saw people taking photos standing in front of that stacked wood.

Certainly it was an opportunity to capture the work of the woodsman and his horses. A beautiful and rare thing.
