Since I have been lucky spotting some moose the last month, I would like to continue with the animal in same size. This time though a bit more in the series “man and nature” especially how things used to be performed in the past. I hope this type of working will have its renaissance also in our time. A big thank you to Elli, Matti Virta from Mäntsälä and Fredrik Lehto who invited me to join the timber-horseride this week!
