Horse Hitches in Arthur, IL

Late April we traveled to Arthur to visit friends. It was time to start working the fields so we drove around to see what was happening. As we drove around we saw a 7 horse hitch disking in a field. We were pretty impressed until about 10 minutes later we saw the hitch on the right.

Not impressed? Well, you really can’t tell much from this angle with the horses all lined up in the diagonal row…so I walked around the back and snapped the photo below.

Count them!!!

YEAP, Eight rumps!!! Could not believe this so I walked around to the front to count noses...still eight!!! What was even more amazing is these horses were not two rows of four but eight across.

It sure is interesting what you can see if you just travel around a little.
