Trimpley Heavy Horse Festival

Had a lovely morning here- its the home of the countries largest Suffolk Punch Stud- 46 animals in total.

The guys description of the horse was great- a face of an angel, the body of a barrel and the arse of a farmers wife .

Utterly gorgeous!!! Thanks for putting those up - I have a very soft spot for heavy horses even though I choose to ride an Arab! Love the colouring of the last 2 photos and what short legs he has! Could probably pull a train though!! Love Lizzie

I am another heavy horse fan as well, thanks for the photos.

I saw the signs for that when I was driving back from Kidderminster last week - shame I couldn't get another weekend off!
Gorgeous horses. Was it well attended?

It was very well attended- not very good at guess the numbers of people- but it must have been well over a 1000 based on the number of cars and the crowds.

A definate date for our diary next year.

That last horse is fantastic - I love Suffolks.  Botany Bay farm in Enfield keeps them, and some time this week I'm popping up there to view the progress of this year's foal
