Now we know why so many of the older farmers in the Hood River area kept their teams around and in good shape after they went to motorized vehicles.
The truck by itself looks heavy enough to sink out of sight, but with that heavy metal thing on it would just push it further in the muck. What is that in the back of it?

Agreed Arthur.....how about that white shirt and tie.....

Ugh! People just don't have to deal with this anymore. Especially in the spring when the ground thaws and everything turns to a quagmire.
I'm surprised the horses can give much help to that heavy load.
What in the heck is that thing in the bed of the truck?

It looks like they tied rope around the rear tires to act like chains.

I imagine the horses didn't have to haul a dead load. More like giving a car a push when it's stuck in the snow. The car, and the truck still do most of the work.

It appears the cargo is another truck bed....or a hopper of some prescription?

Brian, I was looking earlier at that rope in the rear spokes. Looks like a tangled mess.
And, it looks like the front tire is shredded to nothing.

The tires appear to be solid rubber verse pneumatic ones. I was wondering if the load wasn't a stock trough. Heavily built if it is, wonder if it is still in use somewhere out there today?

That truck might still be buried out there somewhere also.........
