Flatbed Work: Scout the Ox

Scout the Ox pulls a flatbed trailer for work around the farm.  Notice, at about the middle of the video, I have tied one rein to the trailer to prevent Scout from walking off with the dog.

Snapshot in the Dark

Recently, I bedded the ox and the dogs stall with shredded paper that happened to be bright-colored pink, orange, and green. I thought to get a flash picture of Harry sleeping in his gaudy nest. In the dark I quietly approached and opened the top half of the stall door and fired off this shot. Harry met me at the door and this picture resulted.
