If you have ever farmed or lived in a farming area you will appreciate all the work that goes in to doing everything with horses. I could not believe how easily the Amish can handle a six or eight horse hitch and how much ground they can cover in one day. It was fun to watch one field being plowed by a tractor with eight huge tires and a 24 row disk and across the road a 4 row disk pulled by eight horses.
I think the reduction in overhead is what makes them do what I showed them doing in a past blog - making a trip to Wells Fargo Bank. It's good to have the men in the field as it gives the women time to do all the great cooking we have been sampling.
Until next time - Unplug and travel safe
