    Yep " The Boys " they just came back from Amish boot camp. Our neighbor used them to help plow this year, he teamed them with his Percheron . Ours on the outside and his in the middle (three wide). There's nothing more beautiful in the spring time than watching the Amish plow, what a site when you see six wide and the control they have over the team. In a few week we will use them to bring in a couple dead fall trees from the woods for fire wood.

    Updated pic of the new guy. He's a sneaky little thing he slipped under our fence and and camped out in the neighbors corm field.
    This week we need to pull hairs to have his DNA checked.
