Ever since I was old enough to help with the chores, I've cared for our horses. Datt says that I have a special way with them. Because we Amish do not drive cars, trucks, or tractors, our horses are very important to us.
An Amish boy introduces us to his family's 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 it's 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.
Über den Autor: Richard Ammon enjoys reading, fly-fishing, playing a euphonium in a brass ensemble, ice hockey, and driving his Old Order Amish friends to horse sales. He is also the author of An Amish Christmas, An Amish Wedding, and An Amish Year, all illustrated by Pamela Patrick.
