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?
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).
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!
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 .
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!
