Last Thursday I had a wander round the horse sale again. As the picture below shows, having strange horses in the next pen can feel very threatening.
Someone had the bright idea of crossing a gypsy cob with a Shire . . .
The registered Welsh Cobs (Cs and Ds) were mostly in this section.
This was a big lad - with a beautiful eye.
Hopefully this little chap is now a child's best friend.
Not such a smart hair cut! This mare looks due to foal any day.
I loved the liver chestnut in the front . . .
Three farm-bred youngsters who arrived soaked in sweat but soon settled down. Nice sorts.
These are the bread-and-butter types at this auction - apart from the ubiquitous grey and wild Section A youngsters, there are more coloured cobs than anything most months.
Here's the one I wanted to bring home - for obvious reasons.
