might want to get some good running shoes for this mike
i’m guessing you don’t have a horse handy

so i think we know who will be running this treadmill
(this after painting the house again
and working the garden)

oh and don’t forget to change the note
in the re-gifted valentine box
from time to time
till you have time to do a new one for next year

Nice find Mike. Definitely a true one HP operation. Wished my dad would have come up with something like that for his 3 ft^3 cement mixer. I sure hated turning it by hand!

I’d like to pass the video along to a couple Amish friends, but I suppose that would require electricity. :(

It is pretty amazing that horses powered so many different things in the past including ferry boats, canal boats and a host of other things.
