    Very interesting comments about the steel wheels on tractors which helps to explain a mystery I have always wondered about. It also fits very nicely into the “Amish Qualification Index” used by elders to determine if things are acceptable in the Amish life. According to my brother-in-law, who was born and raised Amish in Holmes County, OH, an affirmative response to this simple question solves most of life’s tough dilemma’s. “Is it black, blue, or unhandy?”

  • Greg, first I’ve heard of an official “AQI”, but you made me chuckle!

    While living at Aylmer Ontario, the Amish were asked to have summer horseshoes for the road horses as the steel horseshoes damaged the roads during the summer months. So the Amish’s solution was or is to have winter boots and summer shoes for their road horses. Another problem was the horse pooping in town and the solution was simple, you clean up after your horse. Scoop up the poop and take it home or drop it off in a ditch out of town.

    Sounds like the thief is messing with the Amish, testing their non-resistance rather than wanting to or needing to steal.I know plain people who get this a lot.
