Horses mined too

Recommended Posts

I guess Some lived good lives, other not so.  I heard many went blind.

My grandpa told me that when in the mines for years that when they got out they still kept their heads lowered as not to hit the roof when walking.  Also they all had problems with their eyes when in normal light.

Looks like a Percheron.

My great-grandfather used a draft mule in his one man coal mining operation. I know that mule was blind as a result of being underground, probably the constant eye strain.

Old mining photos should be quite collectable these days.
