So I have a sort of hypothetical question. How many American Shetland Ponies would it take to pull a round bale, assuming the bale is 1000 lbs, the ponies are 40-46 inches tall, the ground resonably flat, with the bale strapped to some sort of light sled apparatus (Sheet of plywood, car hood, ect.). Presumably Foundation type as the others are more finely built (Classic or Modern would be too dainty I would think). Is it even possible? The reason for this question is that I'm looking to get into showing and driving ponies in the next few years, and its more economical to use round bales to feed. I'd rather have ponies drag the bales than buy a machine to do it, but not if it would be too much for them. I do understand that even with the peramiters given there are about a hundred other variables too, but I'm just looking fora vauge awnser.
