He looks fat and happy... maybe a little smug, getting all the girls and all. :p:

He was a beauty.

Straight and narrow

A competitor with a pair of heavy horses attempts to plough the straightest furrow at the 68th British National Ploughing Championships.
More than 250 ploughmen took part in the event at Austrey, Warwickshire, this weekend.
I've been to a number of ploughing competitions and found it quite astonishing how much attention to detail is shown by the competitors.

Advance a few feet, examine the results, make adjustments to plough or harness, advance another few feet, and so on...

That looks like a woman driving that white team.
Out in Amish country all work stops on Sunday, only the horses pulling the buggies are used. I've noticed the horses and mules used for working the farm are never more than a few feet from each other in a big pasture. They work together and spend their time off together.

Given that the location is in Scotland, it's odds on that they are Clydesdales, but the chap furthest from the camera has the Roman nose of a Shire. Not sure...

Smart man, use two right hand horses and two left hand horses, bound to plow straight. ;)

He looks to be going deep.

Ploughing.

Cough - coff
Rough - ruff

There's not much ploughing in Slough.

Or is it not much pluffing in Sluff?

Sometimes a chap gets confused.

Gravdigr 11-01-2018 03:36 PM

That chap would be me. Most of the time.

:D

Numerous ceremonies and events are being held in commemoration of the end of the First World war and quite rightly they concentrate on the human cost of that conflict.

The part that animals, mostly horses, played has also been recognised.

Western movies (cowboy flicks) have 98% brown horses. The hero or lead bad guy might ride white, black, or palomino.
They're missing out on so many possibilities of making movies more colorful.

Maybe the actors don't want to be upstaged...
