Heavy Horsepower ….on Four Legs

One Lucky Lady…

She sure was…..she had just been awarded “Supreme Champion” in the Shire Horse Championships, here in Derbyshire.  Very appropriately named Kilmore Lady Luck.  Both horse and owner obviously well pleased with their success.

Not that luck came into the equation.  Just lots of hard work and patience over time by all the Horses and Owners competing.  It is hard to conceive that this giants of the horse world can be both some powerful yet so placid.  Once the backbone of the agriculture, haulage and military arenas, thanks to some dedicated breeders and owners the Shire Horse Breed continues to have a place in our British countryside to-day.

Even nicer for them to make the big effort to bring the Horses young and old along for us to see and enjoy
