Iron horse

there was a man who invested heavily when Bill Gates started Microsoft and he became a multi-billionaire. Looking at a picture of Bill and his wife, Melinda both had pale indoor faces spending their time writing checks to Africa. The rich man decided to become a farmer of the old school but since also remembered muddy boots from his childhood, he made a mechanical, a big horse that could plough six furrows at a time all he had to do, was to sit in a corner and direct the horse which when coming to the end of a field turned and ploughed in the opposite direction. One day he forgot the on and off button and the horse continued over total road destruction, and into a nearby housing estate creating mayhem. The rich man quickly had to rebuild and compensate his shocked neighbours. But people didn´t want the bloody wonder horse an at a town hall meeting, he was banned from using it except for an exhibition on how to be a modern farmer
