First of all, I want to say thanks to everyone who posts here, you all put some amazing information out into the world where anyone can find it and learn about things that are rarely written or discussed anywhere else!
I am fascinated by the amazing work that gets done with draft animals, and it seems to me that there are a lot more people doing that work back east than out here where I live in Southern California. I'll be visiting family in North Carolina and Georgia in a few weeks, probably between July 20th and August 10th or so, and I would love to get some hands-on experience around draft horses. I'm hoping it would be an exchange of work and teaching, I'm happy to lend a hand with whatever needs to get done.
I have about 7 years of experience with horses now, a small amount of experience being around working Belgians and Percherons (but not driving them), and essentially no farming experience (I've grown some tomatoes and carrots for myself). But I am cheerful and attentive and I learn quickly.
I'll be in Mooresville, NC and near Savannah, GA for most of my trip, and I'm happy to do a bit of extra driving for this experience. So if you could use an extra hand (or know someone who might!) and don't mind me asking questions, please respond here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I'm also happy to give more information about myself, just ask!
