A True Work Horse


A True Work HorseToday we took advantage of the wonderful autumn weather and rode out to Amish Country on the motorcycle.  We saw many horse and buggies on the road; a sight one hopes to see when visiting this part of Pennsylvania. 

I always admire the look of the horses we see as they are always a beautiful color and very trim from their work as transportation for their owners.  But today we had a close encounter with one horse that made me feel for those horses…this horse was forced to stop at a red traffic light three quarters of the way up a very steep grade of road on Route 41 heading south from Route 30 in Gap, Pennsylvania.  We were in the left lane of two lanes heading in the same direction and this horse did not want to stop his stride in the right lane next to us… he was sweating profusely and foaming from his mouth and his veins were very visible on the surface of his skin… he kept moving his head sideways…

It was hard for me to see his struggle as he wanted to keep moving… I have seen glimpses of horses really working hard on the road in and around Lancaster, but this was the most extreme for me to see so close.  What we see in postcards and in passing quickly on a flat road does not show it all.

These fine animals are true work horses and I only hope they are given the care and the well deserved rest they need at the end of every working day by their owners.
