Ron is a temporary addition to the group of Clydesdale horses in Pollok Country Park over the Christmas period, and he is scheduled to help pull the Christmas Cart around the estate.
Here he is watching intently as another of the horses is being led away.

My thanks to all who kindly commented on Winter Foraging.

Ronnie.

Looks like a nice fellow. Did they name him after anyone we know?
The girls told us about the Christmas Rides - the children must be thrilled.
Maybe you'll capture a picture for us Ronnie.
