Nick Coleman, 59, guided a team of draft horses pulling a plow through one of his fields in preparation for planting in May 1992. Coleman farmed the same 187 acres in Henry County that his grandfather did a century before, using draft horses for everything except baling hay. Click on the image for a larger view.
