Because we Amish do not drive cars, trucks, or tractors, our horses are very important to us. An Amish boy introduces us to his familys horses and shows us how they help with daily life around a typical Amish farm.There are six draft horses: Ben, Jerry, Rowdy, Buster, Judy, and Rock who pull the farm machinery in the fields. When the family goes to visit relatives, Roy, a Saddlebred, pulls the wagon. When Roy needs a new pair of shoes, he is taken to the farrier to have his hooves trimmed and new shoes hammered into place. Every day, the horses have to be fed and watered, currycombed, and have their stalls cleaned.One day, Datt says its time to buy another horse, and that means going to a horse auction. As they carefully consider each animal, not one seems quite right, until a handsome black gelding enters the ring and -- Sold -- Netroy joins their farm...and becomes a part of the family.
