MINNESOTA CLYDESDALE Minnesota Moose Used for Logging
Believe it or Not!  This logger raised this abandoned moose calf with his horses and trained it to haul logs. With a ton of muscles and splayed , gripping hooves, the logger claims this moose is the best work animal he has. The secret to keeping the moose around is a sweet salt lick. However, during the rot the moose does tent to disappear for a few weeks but he always comes how.
