How cute is this pair? This is 6-year-old Ernest and his family's draft horse, Barka. Ernest lives in Dolhobrody, Poland. His family received this horse through a Heifer project in their village working to improve farm productivity and increase access to markets. Barka plows the family's fields and helps the family take their produce to market.
