This is the second part of the Q&A I did with my friend Ben in Lancaster County in June (here’s the first part, on Amish & auctions).

In this one, Ben describes how he buys buggy horses for his family – what characteristics he looks for in a horse, where he buys them, and price.

He also explains how different family members get different kinds of horses (for example, as he says in the video, “my sons don’t want to drive a horse like I would like to drive”). Runtime: 2:52.
