Larry Cooper of Gulland Forge has followed my ox and dog blog for several years. I received the following note from him:

I'm a blacksmith who is also interested in oxen. Let me know if I can help with hardware in any way.
I love your blog.Cooper's interests include draft oxen and mowing with a scythe. Check out his website below.

Thanks for sharing the link to my site. We make only broadforks right now, but our plans are to expand and begin to make many more hand tools as well as oxen and yoke hardware.
You have been so innovative with your homemade adaptations and careful study of the ox that I really admire what you are doing and as a board member of the Midwest Ox Drovers Association, I sincerely appreciate the exposure you have given the ox. The relationship you have with Scout (and Harry) is inspiring and beautiful to see.
Keep up the good work.
