I went down to the Borders last Friday night to see the gorgeous Clydesdales belonging to Tom Tennant. He was hosting his yearly Evening With Heavy Horses as part of the Borders Festival of the Horse.

Lots of pics. Enjoy!

An old friend, Sunrise, a 3yo chestnut mare who tried to eat me the first time we met!

Lovely photographs!

Heavies are so unappreciated these days!

Ta!

The ridden demonstration was very much appreciated - practically everyone who'd been watching the horses in the yard came out to the field to watch the black gelding in the photos being put through his paces - walk, trot, canter and gallop!

I love Clydies. I'd have one in a minute! Might actually be looking for one as a companion for Chubbles!

My mate's dad used to breed and show them and we have toyed with the idea of doing it together but we don't have the land at present.

Gorgeous, isn't she? I wonder if she remembered me from the last time I saw her, as she was very cuddly and wouldn't leave me alone!
