Harvesting corn by hand is hard work. This team has been trained to quietly (and patiently) move down the rows as a young boy gathered the corn stalks and loaded them on the wagon. Then they would move ahead a few steps and repeat the process. It's amazing to me that a few words from a young boy weighing about 130 pounds had complete control of this pair of horses - each horse probably weighing about 1600 pounds. We enjoyed stopping and watching them work the field.
