Smashing photos John. I like the way you have one horse 'framed' by the other - and the stand-off between the cattle. The ducks are straight out of Beatrix Potter!
Yes, great photography. Are those Shire horses? And I really like Highland Cattle. From the scene in the tractor lot, I take it this is a museum farm. I know my granddaughter would love it. Jim
Lovely photos - when we visited in June the Highland cattle were in a pen in the farmyard so it is great to see them out on grass - I loved the two donkeys, such characters:)
Thanks for the comments.jennyfreckles: the framing of the second horse was a happy accident. The two Highland cattle are a Bull and a cow so it may be a "come on" rather than a "stand off"!!!Jim: Yes,they're Shire horses. According to a work colleague who's a mine of disconnected information these are the kind of horses on which knights rode into battle - of course, Hollywood will not accept this historical truth!Rosie: They seem to rotate the stock around frequently so they don't get bored with looking at us humans.
Thanks for taking the time to comment. I'll try to answer any questions via a comment or e-mail within the next day or two (no hard questions, please!).
