Yesterday, I talked to an American friend and the topic was related to horses, but I was not able to discuss this topic thoroughly because of my poor spoken English, so today I am going to write about this topic here. Nowadays, you seldom see horses in cities, apart from in zoos, even if in the countryside, you also seldom see horses. Maybe you only see them in pasturelands, but decades ago, in the countryside, you could often see them in every village, because at that time, the productive forces were very low, farmers had to use horses to plow the land to grow crops, so every village fed around ten or fifteen horses, and I even fed those horses several times then, but now, farmers don't use horses to plow fields to plant crops anymore, instead they all use modern agricultural machines to plant and harvest crops, so they never raised horses at all, and you have never seen horses again.

Maybe you can see them in fields, but decades ago, in the countryside, you could often see them in every village. This was because at that time, their was no machinery, farmers had to use horses to plow the land to grow crops, so every village had around ten to fifteen horses. I even fed those horses several times then, but now, farmers don't use horses to plow fields to plant crops anymore. Instead they all use modern agricultural machines to plant and harvest crops, so they never raise horses at all, and you never see horses at all.
Interesting. The main thing you need to do here is shorten your sentences. Once you have two commas in a sentence think about finishing it. I see horses in Xiamen but they are just for riding. I still see oxen being used for ploughing out in the villages on the mainland.
