No snow tires needed here. by sarasdadandmom

No snow tires needed here.

This picture was taken in Northern Indiana, where we have a large Amish population.
I have seen them pull fishing boats, cement mixers and a host of other things with these buggies. They are amazing people
that is so cool :D

Yes, they are! They still have to take good care of those horse shoes, I imagine.

I agree. Amazing people...and love the picture. I enjoy visiting Amish land in Indiana. Thanks for sharing this.

@mrssmith Your welcome. I like the food a little to much when I go to Shipshawanna.

This is such a beautiful shot! Love how the buggy is going through a green light. A little bit of old age plus new age technology in this photo. The Amish really intrigue me. I'd love to visit there sometime. What a cool capture!!

Great capture...my sister-in-law who lives in Woodhull, NY...another Amish area. Cathy and her husband, Mike, and their Amish neighbors barter many tasks...for example Cathy & Mike allow the Amish to plant hay on some of their property and also to use one of their barns for storage. In return, the Amish gave them a good deal on building an addition on their home...Cathy always has interesting Amish stories to share with me when I visit...I often try to be sneaky and get a few good photos of them...so far I have not done very well at stealth photography!

Poor horse must get tired. We have a lot of buggies in our area, but have never seen the buggies pull things liike that.

Wow! What a fabulous photo! I'm intrigued by the Amish lifestyle. But sometimes it seems the simple life isn't really so simple...it's very hard work. Love this shot!

@hwy61 so interesting ... we have nothing like this in Australia so great to hear about it all.
December 30th, 2010

@isisweiss Thanks and the same too you . i enjoy your photos so much

@hwy61 What a great way to help each other with the bartering. We should all do more of that.

Sounds like hard work for one horse. I never thought of them pulling more than just one carriage. Thanks for the insight.

wonderful photo, one day I would love to travel to the areas that they live.

@lynne3804 Let me know and I will give you the info They have a cheese factory where they make the best cheese ever. Their wood working skills are wonderful. They hand make a lot of the banisters in the new expensive homes. The food is unbelievable.
