John working With Ross and Jimmy

By danbrann  
It's that time of the year again.
I have cropped this one hard to attempt to show the size of these majestic animals. For anyone not aware John Dodd and his family farm this Northumberland with the aid of
Clydesdale Horses. There is no machinery whatsoever on the farm.

Due to our recent house move I have been missing from this site for quite some time but we are now making progress. the last of the contractors have gone, the bills are paid and we are settling in nicely.

The good thing is that we both love it.

I noticed you were not around and assumed you were sunning yourself in the Bahamas. This is a strong composition and I like the little touch of the grass in the horses' mouths.

I never tire of seeing these grand big horses Danny, you do them justice my friend. Good to hear that you're settled in and th work is done, now you can both relax and enjoy the fruits of your labours. Please pass my best wishes to Angela too Danny.

All the best and good to see you back.

Great to see this working trio (I was going to say pair, but the John obviously works in total unison with them) and your tight crop and low POV does show these heavy horses off so well, Danny.

Splendid image from that low pov, Danny. I had rather thought that the driver sat rather further back from the horses' tails . . .

Wondered where you were Danny - hope you settle in quickly. Nearly two years since we swapped house for apartment and we are still moving the furniture around!!! Made my day with today's shot - I love these horses.

Like Dougie I never tire of seeing these shots Danny.
And I hope you are not too tired after your move.
I am sure when me and Big Aggie come to your house warming party,
if you ask her nicely,she will give you a nice soothing massage to ease your aching muscles !!
