Made me want a Clydesdale (and the farm to work one in), also I liked the Stallion Axel, especially when he did his detour to the mare when Martin Clunes was driving him, that had the potential to go horribly wrong, not ridden a stallion in a while but remember that warning squel!
Watched it now, thoroughly enjoyed it, although I wanted someone to get that bloomin' jack russell out of the way! Felt a bit sorry for 'the boys' being hitched up to the stroppy stallion and dragged through the river but they did well didn't they .
It was absolutely fantastic, his obvious love for horses and especially for his 'boys' is so obvious. I just love him and could listen to his voice for hours...<oops, bit off topic>
My favourite was the visit to the Italian Vineyard owner who had a Comptois. We had the pleasure of watching the Comptois team (wearing their lovely Carry On Comptois hoodies) at the Weald and Downland heavy horse show last year and I have fallen in love with them.
Love all heavy horses though, if I am ever going to own a horse it will be a heavy one!
Thank you! He's not looking too stunning atm, what with the beard, and the mud and the dreadlocked mane and tail. Roll on spring I say. I've always said he should be in harness really and some people in our area have recently had their cob broken to drive a carriage. He is the absolute spitting image of dhorse and I would so love to see them as a pair. (actually if I'd been rich I could have had dhorse's full brother at the same time I bought him. He's a year younger and a darker bay. I often wonder where he went).
Hi there, I missed last week's episode but a friend told me that the programme can be bought as a DVD. I've searched for this but can't find it anywhere. Did she imagine it or has it not been released yet?
