Kevin and Mikki Teague and son John from Liberty, North Carolina brought their two Belgian mares Pearl and Rose by my neighbor Gary McMasters' farm in Grays Chapel for a little spring workout. Gary hitched the two sisters to a land drag and worked them for a couple of hours to help clear the winter cobwebs. The work horses were raised in the Amish country in Indiana. Kevin bought them when they were around nine years old. They are seventeen and eighteen now.
