It seems like I am attracted to Winter plowing by horses by the Amish farmers. I hope you enjoy seeing these posts. I decided to do the narrow landscape version to give added interest.

Plowing with Horses

The days work is done, giving the horses and the farmer rest.

Amish Farmer in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, USA, still farming with horses, as is typical for the Amish.

The upper photo is of a plow that is manufactured locally for the Amish, many who use horses for their field work. In the lower photo, you see a plow in action!

I remember when I was a young boy, milking a cow with a one-legged stool! Here these three men are demonstrating how to use the stool. Nostalgia

The Amish farmer who bought this farm in 1998, is glad he decided to continue with the apple orchard, instead of dozing the trees, and having a dairy farm!

Brings back memories of growing up on an Iowa farm, where we raised purebred Suffolk sheep!

My attempt at taking a photo of this Amish farmer in the field with his team of horses, fertilizing with cow manure. I thought it would be a nice addition to the corn stalk shocks! It is unique, though you might need a magnifying glass to see the farmer. It doesn’t help that there was a post between the horses and me! I am still pondering whether to get a telephoto lens for my Sony alpha6000.
