Bill's vacation photo.

Visitors to Horse Progress Days could cool off with dish of home-made ice cream. The power to crank the ice cream makers was provided by Haflinger horses. A young Amish boy has thrown a blanket over one of the horse's backs and is urging the horse on while he enjoys a ride on this "Amish merry-go-round." Haflinger horses are originally from the moutainous region of eastern Austria. Like the Comtois horse from the French foothills of the Alps, the Haflinger resembles a scaled-down Belgian draft horse.
