      Not So!
      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.

      This might come through twice when Hotmail gets its act together.
