    My guesses are:

    1. teens in rumspringa having buggy races
    2. they were at a wedding or funeral, and they marked buggies so they would know whose was whose

  2. Teresa Lemon

    Maybe they just bought it at an auction or farm sale.

  3. Heather D.

    4 sale? 🙂 Seriously, I have no idea but it would be nice to know.

  4. Cindy

    I’ve seen that before at buggy auctions. I don’t know if that is why he has the #4 but I have seen buggies with lot/auction numbers on them in the past.

    I have no idea, If you figure it out Kevin , let us know. Maybe they bought it at a Buggy sale, & they were numbered, so you would know which one you were buying ??????

  6. Missy

    I too wondered if they’d been to a wedding or funeral and that was an identification marking to join the right horse with the right buggy and owner.

  7. Miriam White

    Maybe there are four people inside the buggy???

  8. Linda South

    Maybe he’s a Nascar fan!!!!
