Horse Drawn Farm Implements (Book) AUD $45.00


Horse-Drawn Farm Implements encompasses the whole range of attempts to harness animal power on the land over the past century and a half in Britain and North America. Some advances have been rapid, although the time scale may have been years rather than the weeks made possible by modern communications.

Others have been painstakingly slow, retarded by a series of suffocating agricultural depressions when survival rather than expansion was the keyword.

For the first time, the inter-relation between advances in such other spheres as banking, the telegraph, roads and railways with farming methods is analysed.

Readers will be able to relate to most of the implements shown, as they were used within living memory. The host of working demonstrations, country fairs and horse ploughing matches bring them home to us. Visitors to these happy events will appreciate and enjoy them the more through reading these pictorial pages, which capture the spirit of the horse age without unduly sentimentalising about the hours of hard work involved. The skills used are also captured, and their application may some day be called upon once more.

'If you can plough with horses, you can plough with a tractor' is a well-proven saying. The converse is not true. That applies to other implements also, and is yet another reason for studying and enjoying this book.
