While driving around enjoying this weekend we just had to stop and watch this young man as he plowed this field. It was amazing. 1: He was working with 6 horses all by himself (well - he did have his dog with him). 2. The furrow was absolutely straight. 3. The amazing part was that he was balanced on this plow while moving around the field. He didn't have a seat or a special place for his feet. His balance was remarkable - he didn't use the reins for balance - in fact, he had nothing to hold on to. The horses were so well behaved we just had to stare at him as he went around and around. At each corner the horses patiently side stepped and swung around ready to start again in a different direction. A perfect example of teamwork - not to mention hard work.
P.S. We did ask him if we could take his picture and he agreed as long as we didn't take his face.
