Arrsers self taken photo collection.

First race I've photographed this year; all the others were cancelled or postponed. It was meant to be a 'night race' across the Severn Bridge, but this is one postponed from November last year.

Just going through the pics now.

I was with a guy yesterday discussing removing trees from some woodland using a horse. Should be good day.

They use a horse or horses a lot for smaller jobs were there are no roads in or out and they don't want to mess with the environment. I've seen it in West Virginia. They earn their Oats. Get some photos, would be interesting to see.

Quite common now in the UK for awkward corners, odd trees or steep gradients. Sometimes working as a pairs they mostly use conventional shafts to pull a two-wheeled trolley which carries one end of the tree. Occasionally just a straight pull and drag with chains but always a lovely sight. The Draw Horses are usually Suffolk Punch or Belgian Percheron.

Yes there is some thing peaceful about watching that sort of thing.

The date groves have been there for 4,000 years and the Roman street for 2,000. Image taken from the castle in the image below. A 13th. century Mamluke castle. In a morning you could stroll through history.
