Frontier Resources in the News

On Tuesday we had a visit from Wilmington News Journal reporter Brandon Smith who wrote this article. Unfortunately the photo in his article is mis-labeled. It actually shows Maria Hummel with the oxen.

Picture of the Oxen at the Hartford City Civil War Event 2007

We thank photographer Linda McMillan for allowing us to post this picture taken at the Hartford City Civil War event in October 2007. The Four Kings are great around cannon. This event several years ago was their first time around large cannon. They had been around other artillery, but nothing this large. The first firing on the line took them a bit by surprise, but with Gerry by the lead team of George and William, and me by James & Charles to reassure them, by the 3rd firing they had settled and have never again really reacted to artillery.

Their calm, quiet acceptance has helped other teams, both horses and oxen, to accept artillery with aplomb.
