Actually 12.7hp at the rear wheels!

Here is a Model T Dyno Test. ( I once Dyno tested a Postie Bike and it gave 5.1hp at the wheel.)

Its hard to believe that horses could pull such loads of wood on the ice roads that were made in the bush in the US winters but I have seen action shots of the horse so I guess it must be true

I dunno if other people on here know, they used to make ice roads all thru bush in the winters to shift the logs cut in the summer months

Water was spread out with a horse drawn water cart on a pre leveled track to form a sheet of ice to shift these loads

I reckon it would be a pretty miserable job building the roads in sub zero temps

Theres a book called "Endless Tracks in the Woods" that shows a lot of this stuff

Looks to me the shovel is sitting on the final finish section of the Bruce or Warrego Highways in Queensland.

PS The cook has 6 of those lamps hanging up with creepers growing from them.
