Sunday at Wallenstein
This late autumn painting shows the only guaranteed day-off that these draft horses experience. The conservative Mennonite groups are consistent in not working on the Sabbath, other than the daily maintenance their animals require. Only the carriage horses come in for Sunday work. These Belgian draft horses are currently favoured for field work because the breweries demand for parade horses has made them very cheap, as breeders vie to produce show animals. Many of the horses are not of parade standard, but will do very well as fourteen-hundred-pound, inexpensive work horses.
