    The smell of a tack shop is something special! I noticed the supplements and the various bottles and such of treatments. We shepherds sometimes make use of the more common horse treatments for other four footed animals.

    Amish energy and Sunday

    Hi Erik,
    Interesting post and great photos, as always.
    Some Amish folks are using solar panels to charge batteries, then they hook up an inverter and run sewing machines and even fax machines off of them.
    I know the Amish take the day of rest very seriously so I wonder if the Amish cook on Sundays?

      Sundays is usually a leftovers day, or day to eat something prepared in advance. You wouldn’t get down to a whole lot of baking or cooking that day.

      No the Amish do not cook on Sunday. They cook everything on Sat. and just eat like sandwiches and salads on Sunday. Sometimes cold chicken.

    Sniff! What's that smell?

    Too bad these emails can’t be “scratch and sniff”. Is the smell of an Amish tack shop anything like that of an old fashioned cobbler/shoe repair shop? THAT I’m familiar with!

    Harness Shop

    Say, while thinking about various forms of transportation including the horse. I wondered whether or not the Amish can ride on trains?

    Harness Shop

    This looks more modern than my friend in New Wilmington’s Harness Shop. Theirs is in a barn. But it still has lots of bridles and stuff.

      Eastside harness prices

      Jon, probably not so convenient for you in Australia but your best bet is to either write them or ring them. The address is above.

      I don’t know what the phone situation at Eastside is (some Amish businesses have particular times for calling), but the number, which I found online, is: (260) 593-2646. Happy hunting.
