Have you ever watched a 2000-pound horse pull logs? A few years ago, a friend called to tell me that a man who lived over the hill from us was having some trees cut out of his yard and they were using a Belgium horse to drag the logs. Lisa, Adam, Aaron, and I loaded up and went to watch. Like most little boys, Adam and Aaron were fascinated with horses.

We had fun watching the man lead the horse. I couldn’t believe how well trained the horse was. The man never spoke above a normal tone of voice. The horse would back up, turn left, turn right, stop, walk, or run at his command. I thought to myself, “Life would be a lot easier if Adam and Aaron were that well trained.”

What astounded me the most was this. Here was a man who might have weighed in at 160 pounds leading a horse that weighed over a ton. If that horse didn’t want to obey his owner, he could have kicked him into the next the county. Instead, that beast of burden had humbled his will to that of his owner. That big, strong Belgium horse was strength under control.
