As nice as the report about the plow day in Kentucky was today, it is kind of startling to see almost no young faces among the plowmen. Now, I hardly ever go to any far away events and my plow days are right here on the farm, so I may not have the correct impression.
On a different vein, in Jamesport recently when I picked up my overhauled mower I asked the Amish guy who had worked on it why I saw so few draft horses as opposed to the many buggy horses. His laconic answer was: People can't afford them. Sounded kind of strange, since I am pretty sure the Amish are aware of breeding.
