Draft Horse

Draft Horse

The draft horse was the more expensive, yet more efficient option for work animals on the farm in the 1800’s. Oxen were cheap labor, but the draft horses worked much faster, and were easier for one person to handle. As time progressed, and there was less labor on the farm to manage the animals, the horses were the animal of choice…until the tractor came along.
