    Well it occurred to me that a lot of us use horses in out pursuit of game and I think we should have a section devoted to them. Both as pack animals and transportation.
    Please share your pics experiences and if you have any animals for sale that would be good to know too.
    Here are some pics of one of my old horses I sold him cause he was to much work to get moving dam appies
