Cheers mate much appreciated, yep we use supper heavyweight shires with special shoes that allow us to keep traction in sum pretty tough conditions and on very steepground, our best horse runs at about 8/9 ton dead weight pull on clean ground and 4/5 ton DWP on claggy ground, with very little damage to the site.

You're very welcome. Could be just the thing they're looking for. Will let you know what I hear back - although they may just get in touch direct.

Didn't have any good pics on this phone as having a rare weekend at home lol, but did have these pics of a family weekend job for a friend in cornwall.

 

This is Trelow jack our 9 year old gelding and our most trusted horse, he's no shower thow in fact he's a bit of a redneck realy lol most happy wen up to his neck in mud, chains and logs ! And won't do Much if you don't get him a pasty at lunch ~,- but has put in sum 15 hour days wen needed and he's always the one we use wen things get a bit risky.

 

Yep he is tall, 19 hands in fact but for hauling hardwoods perfect, first thinings are done by a smaller shire cross generally or long multi leg hauling chain then wen the tracks open the bigboys come in :-) then the cutters are flatout just to keep feeding them generally, lunch is well deserved and you sleepwell at night lol.

He is utterly stunning, if you ask me. Always had a thing about Shires :-)

 

Would you mind letting me know if you're ever on a job within range of Evesham? Happy to travel aways. Would love to see you at work and how they do their stuff.
