Past,pastor=“shepherd” greg= “flock, herd” Did you know? The ancient Romans were superb farmers. Each large farm kept a stock of horses and oxen to pull plows and wagons. Horses were also used to remove tree stumps from the ground. Farmers attached one or more horses to a rope and had them pull out the trunks. The horses were so powerful that the Romans used them to measure the strength of all animals in units they called horsepower. Over time, however, these powerful farm animals grew old and weak. Roman horses were “put out to pasture”. In gratitude for their years of hard labor, the farmers let the aged animals spend the rest of their lives grazing in pastoral bliss. Today we still use horsepower as a unit of measurement to describe the strengths of automobiles, tractors, lawn mowers, and even snow blowers!
