A Last Photo

The crew that had these wonderful and huge beasts here to pull the cart purely for pleasure organised themselves right opposite from where we were camped. It took a lot of time to get them harnessed and attached and as there were a total of 3 Clydesdales here, only two were used at a time. The third one, I watched. He was very keen to watch where they had gone.
Three good things:
1. On this day the event worked. After this I hears that this cart had been damaged and could not be used again.
2. The owners put them in one of the yards beside where we were parked and I could hear the harrumph of them often!
3.The weather was atrocious! Hail, wind, cold - 3deg C but didn't put off the public wanting to come!
A beautiful timeless image. Sounds very cold for spring weather….

@bankmann I did think about it - it was free but it was so cold and muddy and as I had my slippers on, I couldn't!

Handsome pair! I guess the sunshine makes it look warmer than what it really was.

Absolutely adore Clydesdales, such magnificent beasts. I'm old enough to remember them pulling milk floats, bread carts, ice carts etc through the streets.

@happysnaps ...and so obedient and able to be trained! We talked about the huge beasts - elephants and huge horses and how the human can take control!
