Horse-drawn Thresher

Horsedrawn Thresher
Before the advent of industrial equipment, horses were frequently used in agricultural labor. Threshers and harvesters were originally powered by animals, with farmers walking beside or behind the animal to guide it through a field. A complicated array of leather straps distribute the weight of this thresher over a horse’s back.
