A Good Horse

My favorite quote is, "A Good Horse is Never a Bad Color", and Gillette proves it every time. Today we put him on an antique horse powered tread mill, a Leslies Internal Double Gear Treadmill from 1896. It is owned by Blue Slope Country Museum in Franklin, and Gillette will be demonstrating its uses at their fall event on October 3 & 4. Be sure to go to the event to see just how this treadmill works, and what kind of equipment it can power with just one horse! There are plans to demonstrate it with our friends' donkey, too.
