My first small scale skidding was accomplished by using the stock sleeve on the Wheel Horse. An attachment was made to lift the log somewhat. See photo above.
Later the stock sleeve hitch was remove an a 2″ receiver hitch was installed. Next a winch attachment was fabricated and used. This allowed the stem to be lifted higher and more could be skidded at one time. The winch helps to reach stems that you can not back right up to. See photo above and photos below.
