SLS030. 30" x 24" Original framed oil painting on canvas © 2003 by M. L. Wilson. First place, historical category, 2003 Tillamook County Fair; Winner 2003 Joe Champion Award [Best in Class, work depicting historical event or place in Tillamook county] Logging the way it used to be done is back in use in environmentally sensitive areas, smaller land units, and/or difficult terraine where chopper logging or heavy machinery isn't economically feasible. Belgian draft horses are one breed ideally suited to the task and are still raised on the Oregon coast.
