Feeding Time

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.

Amish Country Home

A lovely home for the grandparents. Either the son or son-in-law is returning from mowing hay with the team of horses!

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!

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.
