    Default Ploughing the old way

    This pair of draught horses were at our local ploughing match today - lovely animals.

    Agree with the 'suitable for mono'.
    Shame you couldn't get a better viewpoint, without the houses and cars though.

    The organisers always seem to put the horses in a cluttered corner, so it's not easy to get an image without some distraction or other. Agree with you they are a lovely pair. Good effort John.

    Also enjoyed this in colour on your flickr page.

    Good to see the old skills don't die, although these working heavy horses must be in such a minority now.

    Thanks for sharing
    Canon 5d mk iv plus the usual suspects ......

    So true Barbara - we love to have them at our ploughing match, for the public to see as much as anything else, but we struggle to find a local team to come along.
