    I’m always intrigued by the ingenuity of the Amish to adapt horse dawn
    equipment designed for tractor use to suit their needs i.e. the sulky to which the plow is attached is hydraulically lifted with their specially designed wheel driven hydraulic pump.

    Farmers, carpenters, blacksmiths, buggy makers, etc. are indeed hard workers. In addition, cooking/cleaning/shopping/etc. for large families is hard work as well. I loved how in your latest book, The Whiskers of the Lion, you have the character Pat Lance express respect for Amish women’s living plain, submissive, quiet lives. While Pat Lance dressed up as an Amish woman, she appreciated how difficult it must be to actually live that industrious and submissive lifestyle.

    Six horses? Don’t think I could manage doing that. I have the upmost respect for all the Amish, no matter what their chores may be.
