These four large draft animals supply the "horsepower” for the state's canal boat. Bill and Red are Belgian sorrel geldings from Milroy, Indiana. Tony and Jerry are both Belgian blond geldings. Tony is from Hagerstown, Indiana, while Jerry is from the Metamora area.

In the 1840's, the mules and horses used on the canal were often stabled right on the boats. Our animals, however, reside on a farm just east of the aqueduct.
