Hello Anthony!

You must know that horses are not only used to ride us on their backs!
There are some that are still wild in the wild. There are some in the Camargue. It is a beautiful place to visit in France.
There are therefore LE Camargue and LA Camargue.
According to Wikipedia, THE Camargue is a race small saddle horse rustic at the dress grey, originally from region of the same name, south of the France in the Rhône delta, on the departments of Gard and Bouches-du-Rhône.
Is he handsome enough?

Here where I am, in Lo de Marcos in Mexico, many peasants use horses to go to the fields or even to work in the fields with them.

 When I went for a walk in the mountains, I just met a peasant at work.
Here is the photo of a farmer in his cornfield. He cleaned the rows between the plants with a plow pulled by his horse.
In the next photo, I asked him for some information about his culture. He explained to me how he did it with his horse.
Conceived! His horse walked between the rows without trampling on the corn plants.
In the past, in Quebec, farmers also worked this way on their land.
This type of horse is called a "draft horse".
Can you find a photo of such a horse?
He is another very strong and above all very calm kind of horse.
Louise and I once had a workhorse when we lived in the countryside. I will tell you…
See you soon Anthony!
