Once the corn is planted a horse never goes into the field. Plowing
and planting is usually done with a team of horses, not one. after
planting there is no need for a horse to go back into the field. Also
a horse does not damage the top soil as much as a tractor wheel
Amish farmers in PA still use horses and mules and their rows are
tighter than those of farmers using tractors. Their fields are so
tight you can not look down a row.
