Traditional Farm Harness


Chain Harrowing with a pair of donkeys










The donkey is suitable for a number of tasks connected with agriculture including; Chain harrowing/Flat Bed Trailer work (carrying  4 bales of hay/straw) and hoeing (small donkey hoes can still be found).

Due to the nature of the work the donkey should have a suitable Farm Harness, but any strong harness can be used, the extra length of trace needed can be added with rope and chain.
