On reading about the pit ponies I went off for a look for some photos on the web, The b&w is a lovely one but the colour one is really interesting - it's in Wales (seemingly) and it's of a pony called Sultan. 

I bet Sultan looks great from the air, not so much from the ground ,unless you are very tall.

 

The harbour master at Wells,I notice, is trying to raise funds to save the "SeaHorse" sculpture to honour the horses role in pulling the lifeboat in time of old (I may have posted a pic last month,cos I like it)

Horses are dead good really, aren't they. I may get one to replace the cat.

Perhaps I won't bother after all. I'm a survival specialist and mountaineer when I'm not cruising the canals so pretty able to look after myself physically, but if I'm being sniped unduly with words, not sure how able I am really. 

Fit young man?

My first ever job was with the NCB as a school leaver. When I went for underground training I worked with a pit pony called Star.  He was well named, he was a real character and super intelligent.  His "load" was two of the tubs as per my photo, if you tried to trick him by adding a third he wouldn't have any of it, he just refused to move.  He could also tell if you had an apple in your lunchbox before he could see it.....?
