    This picture is from 1908 Montana, and shows a sheep rancher hauling enormous (400 lb) bags of wool to be sold and made into clothing and other woolen products. At that time, there were more sheep raised in Montana than cattle and horses, according to the information that was with the photo.

    An interesting thing to me was that the horses pulling the wagon look more like ordinary riding horses than the heavy-bodied draft horses usually used for pulling loads and farm work. Most draft horses have “feathers” around their fetlocks, (above the hooves), and none of these horses look like they have much hair there.
