Are you working hard while your horse is lounging out in the field and living the easy life? Well it doesn't have to be that way! Your horse could be helping you out and earning his/her keep as shown in this video. :yes:

Horsepower straight from the source!

What you can't see in (well) that video is that there is a big butt-bar behind him and a huge hand-break behind the operator in case the horse slips. It's in the other angle shots of it.

Very cool!

It's amazing the things that can be connected to treadmills. Refrigeration pumps, ice cream freezers, saws, threshers, balers, generators, irrigation pumps, and yes, Jaslyn, even washing machines!

Ha! My boyfriend would have LOVED one of these last fall when he was the designated firewood splitter :) I'm showing him this video for sure!

Yes, they have adapted the horse-operated treadmill to operate all kinds of machinery- but haven't figured out how to get it to do the really important jobs like cleaning the house, doing the laundry, cooking the meals etc.
