Amish Buggy

Last Update: September 03, 2014

We have a small Amish settlement a few miles from town. It's not unusual to see a horse and buggy going around town. They especially like going to yard sales. On weekends when the sales are going on you'll likely see three of four of them in town. But I digress. My blog is about one particular buggy. One afternoon while I was at work a pickup truck pulling a trailer with an Amish buggy on it pulled into the lot. The driver came in and asked me where I wanted him to put the buggy. Knowing nothing about it I called my boss. She came down and showed him where to place it. It sat there for several weeks with not much attention payed to it. Then one afternoon an Amish couple came into the shop. We struck up a conversation and I asked them about the buggy. Turns out it was a smaller buggy. It would be easy to pull.

So to make a long story short I decided to see if I could find a smaller horse that I could hook up to it I wanted to get a picture of one hooked up to the buggy. I tried several farmers that I know with no luck. Only one had a horse and it was a big one. So I started to do some thinking. Suddenly I had a bright idea! I knew where I could get a small filly! I found her, got her hooked up, and got a great picture!

See below!

Wait for it!

I knew I could find one!

Your filly is a cutie pie. I'm assuming it's a grandangel?
