Before there was horsepower, well, there was horsepower!

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty

Before we had horsepower, well, we had horsepower

We didn’t always have John Deer tractors in our lives to make farming easier with their large wheels and huge horse power. Before there was horsepower, well, there was horsepower and the tools we had to plow the fields were pulled by one, maybe two horses, but, that was all the horse power it needed.

What a good reminder of how far we have come. Both of my grandfathers had mowers like that, I can remember my Mothers father using his with a team of mules. But then as our daughter like to remind I was born in the 1st half of the last century.

Todd, there are still some Amish farms up in Pennsylvania that use horse-power for their farming.
