My friend got a new horse yesterday.
I thought her first horse here on the left was massive, but this one is a giant ex-racehorse. It looks so big and so powerful, even standing still!
Horse-clothing fact: people cover their horses like this in the winter, especially at nights, to *stop* them getting too furry.
Because too much hair doesn’t sit well under saddles and such. So keeping them covered stops them growing a thick winter coat.
This is about 5 minutes walk from my house, on the other side of the main road.

I’m sure the ponies are loving being bigger than the big horse for once.
