saving the best till last....

These are my favourite part of any steam rally… the heavy horses… (You can tell how big they are by the size of the man climbing onto his back!!!)

Unfortunatley, because there was so much other stuff to see, we only got to the horses at the end of the day, and after I took this picture, the battery in my camera died… but I still managed to get some quality time with them…

A rather beautiful Showman's Engine against a backdrop of dramatic sky and Shuttleworth House…

I didn't know you could get steam-driven horses... you learn something new every day

A very nice set . Dangerous to climb on to this high horse . Next time , have another battery with you ... I love these big "work-horses" . I remember one in the little farm where I was born .
