Corn planting patterns were different in 1862, not nearly as
dense, with rows being wide enough for a horse to move between.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.Amish farmers in PA still use horses and mules and their rows are tighter than those of farmers using tractors.O.G.
