Larger draught horses of course had more strength for farm work, but they couldn't trot at speed for 10 miles pulling a carriage like a Welsh Cob
could, so if you owned a draught team, you would also have to own a lighter, speedier animal for carriage work and riding, whereas the Welsh Cob
was capable of performing all of these tasks, and it could survive on far less fodder than a large draught animal.
Some maize remained stubbornly stuck on the cobs
even after repeated threshing, and you had to forcibly remove them with your fingers.This caused painful sores on the thumb that would leave your palms full of hard scones, effectively scaring off prospective dates.
You can test the cobs

The ELPL-COB-100W series is a complete LED grow light-engine on a COB
Plant height and cob
length were recorded at maturity in the field.
"Corn on the cob

The 60-square-meter house is made of sustainable materials like bamboo, river stones, coconut lumber and cob
(a mixture of soil, water and hay), sawdust and lime.
Maize (Zea mays L.), a major cereal grown worldwide, generates cobs
which can be used as pig feed ingredients (Frank et al., 1983; Kanengoni et al., 2004; Ndubuisi et al., 2008).
For my friend, a house made of clay, sand and straw might be even stranger than a house made of com cobs
, but earth homes like the one my husband and I live in have a long history.
By making special cobs
that are stronger than usual (with extra straw), you can build projections out from the main wall.
