Hardworking and intelligent, draft horses and mules provide clean-energy power for an impressive array of tasks. Bringing strength and endurance to every job, from cultivating farmland and hauling logs to giving long quiet rides through the countryside, these animals love to work. In this illustrated guide, Gail Damerow and Anita Rice provide all the information you need in order to select, train, feed, care for, and work with your own team of draft horses or mules.
