runaway horse

Follow That.....Buggy!

SIGH, how fun it would be to someday jump into a cab and tell the driver.  "Follow that car!"   I guess I've watched too many movies.   It'd be fun to do that until you get the cab fare, which always seems ridiculously high.  Anyway,  good thing a horse pulling an Amish-owned buggy knew where to go or the owners would have had to "follow that buggy" in a cab or something. Residents of a tiny northeastern Ohio town were treated to an unusual site yesterday when some an Amish couple who went shopping in town obviously didn't hitch up their horse properly.  The horse got loose and pulled the empty buggy through the town's streets and back to the farmstead!

Meanwhile, SUVs aren't the only vehicles apparently that are prone to "roll over" crashes.  A buggy that toppled over into a small creekbed sent 9 Amish children to hospitals.  None of the injuries appeared to be life-threatened.  Amish children do not typically sit in "child seats" in buggies like they do in cars.  As an Amish mother once told me in a buggy crash the children are far safer if they are ejected than if they stay in the buggy.  This buggy accident occurred outside of Jamestown, New York, the area that has the Empire State's largest and oldest Amish community.
