Saturday at Wal-Mart, Goshen, IN

Typical trip to Wal-Mart to pick up some stuff, right?
Wrong! As we were driving across the parking lot, I
realized I was seeing something rather unusual...

They have special Amish parking at Wal-Mart!

This carriage house has parking on both sides, as well as
around the edges. See our "horsepower" in the background?

This interesting little wagon has coolers in the back,
presumably for carrying groceries home. Notice how
huge this horse is too! Big guy for a little wagon.

The carriages all have the "slow moving vehicle" triangle on the back,
as well as a little license plate. These horses flat get up and move though,
pretty darned fast.

Water trough is at the side of the building, and a
shovel at the ready (though it doesn't look like anybody
has put it to use today!) Wonder which blue-vested
Wal-Mart employee gets to know.

When shopping is done, it's off they go! See the little
trailer behind the carriage? Full of Wal-Mart goodies...
