Heavy Horses

Monty and Dylan

On Sunday 12th August two horses from the
Working Horse Trust will be at High Beeches.

Monty aged 17 and Dylan aged 15 are half-brothers and each weighs as much as a small car.  Both are Ardennes and are roan, Monty is a red roan and Dylan a strawberry roan.  They are the most experienced pair that the Trust has and they have done everything from field work to cross-country driving.

The Ardennes is one of the most ancient draught breeds in the world and it is believed to be the
 founding stock for many working horse breeds. 
They first arrived in the UK with the Roman legions
 and later with the Norman invaders.
