In April 2016 Sophie and I went along to the WW1 Vehicles & Steam fair at Beamish Museum. On checking their website we found that this year they were doing horses of WW1. The horses were not 100 years old of course, but there were people were all dressed up in period costume and showing how horses were used back then, so off we went to ride the trams and take photo’s of everything.
The Circle is our favourite tram, and Sophie and I really want to sit on the balcony bit at the top there, but so far we haven’t managed to get on soon enough, we’ve only ridden in it downstairs.
We decided to walk anyway as we wanted to take pictures along the way.
It was great to see some big dray horses, I love their hairy feet!
They have lovely natures too
This next shot is the back of a field kitchen
and this is the horse’s tail who pulled the kitchen.
and his feet, standing ver prettily I thought
can’t forget his lovely face too
and off he went on his rounds
We’re in for a few reports from this day out, so stay tooned
