A Life Working With Heavy Horses

£9.00 Regular Price: £18.50

A farmer who uses Shire Horses for work on his farm today.

The DVD runs for over an hour and a half and provides a detailed look at someone who uses Shire Horses day in day out in the twenty first century for every thing they do on their farm as well as all sorts of other activities.

Whilst the horses provide the pulling power for every task, this isn't some sort of heritage activity, by utilising a horse pulled wheeled power unit, modern equipment designed for use with tractors can be used, with the Shire horses providing the 'motive power'.

It took some two years to film as all of the farming activities, particularly grass cutting, hay making and balling are by their very nature weather dependant.
