Meet my 50 dollar horse, Loki. Apparently he was “Amish broke” this poor guy is so mistrustful of everything, and has no clue what affection is. I tried to love on him and he just looked at me with this confused expression. Broke my heart. He’s got a long way to go, but I can’t wait to see what he looks like in a few months. He’s only four and measures 17 hands high. He is gonna be a BIG BOY! I have no clue what breed he is though, I’m thinking saddlebred?

Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. This Old-Order Amish farmer is mending a harness. Mustaches are never worn, but beards must be worn by married men. Buttons are permitted on work jackets, such as the one this man is wearing, but are not tolerated on formal coats.”3/19/1941
