ARMERS in general are more familiar with horses than with any other class of farm live stock. They are kept on almost every farm either to perform work, to breed from, or both. They furnish the motive power that operates the various farm implements and machinery. It is impossible to farm successfully under present conditions without them. There have been men in recent years who have endeavoured to eliminate the horse entirely from farming operations, and to perform all their work by machinery. These men have failed to accomplish what they set out to do. The power outfits are good in their place, but they have not as yet supplanted, and are not likely to supplant, the horse for general farm work.
