you ever see a sled with 90 degree ends.....not I think somebody was pulling somebodys wet leg.
...we'll learn more by wandering than searching...
I do in fact have a time machine. but I dont let any body else mess with it.( I have trust issues,Ive seen a lot of history being made) look at the end of those logs..not quite right. nothing with that pic is quite right. it could of just been oh never mind. not worth the time it would take to go back and see.I have better things to see and doo.
Stunt or not, not uncommon. Thought I had seen several similar pictures.

I have seen similar picture before come to think of it. I still think off shot their are more horses ready to hook up. compacted snow with a light covering is indeed an easy slip surface, ie a deliberately made road way, Soft snow no. also the time taken to load the logs would result in the sled effectively freezing to the ground so power would be required to create hat initial inertia required to move such a load. as Jon has already shown in a previous post the wood could be Balsa.
Don't know about horses but i'm all over the place trying to carry an 8'x4' inch ply sheet.
The Millennial snow flake (see how i did that, we now call millennial's snow flakes) may be correct in the assumption that the image is either fake or a stunt. I'm sure its possible to do such things in cyber world, so why the doubt.

I am over 70 years old, and I have several pictures similar to these from the woods of Minnesota. The horses had special shoes with spikes like football shoes. A horse power rating has nothing to do with a real horse. Ours weighed about 1200 lbs each and could out-pull a small tractor. Loads like this were harder to load than move. Also, my first job was to take buckets of water and poor it along the runner path so it pulled easier. As I said, not that unusual.
I am constantly amazed at the things our forefathers, and foremothers were able to accomplish. Things had to be done, they figured out how to do them.
Unfortunately, we need to view some of the things we see today with a bit of skepticism. However, also have to be sure not to diminish what they were able to do, just because we cannot comprehend how hard they worked.
