One of our photo destinations during the North House Folk School workshop was a farm near Grand Marais owned by Philis and Wayne Anderson. When we arrived, their son and a friend were cutting trees into lumber.
The saw was large and it easily handled the long tree trunks that were being cut. It was driven by a belt attached to the tractor shown in the background.
I heard that Wayne made this forklift himself. It sure came in handy for moving the logs and the finished lumber around.
Here’s one of several roosters that live on the farm.
The main reason we came to the farm was to see and photograph their Norwegian Fjord Ponies
One special feature about these ponies is the streak of black hair that runs from their head all the way back to the tail.
Norwegian Fjord Ponies are bred to be work horses. They look sturdy and strong enough to do lots of work around the farm.
Every farm has to have a big, friendly dog.
