I took this sweet picture a while ago. Between household chores, working and church activities, Amish girls are very busy, but a lot of them make time to spend with their horses. It's an acceptable hobby that their parents and community elders usually support. They're horse lovers for the same reasons as us, with one extra special aspect that make their equine friends even more appealing. Horses give these girls a little bit of freedom.
