To see horses crossing Barbadoes Street is unusual. I grabbed my camera and followed them along the river.
These horses usually live in Marshland Road, and had come into town to give some children a ride. They were now being offered a chance to cool off in the river. I did wonder whether pollution in the water might be harmful to them.
The horses’ owner was called Richie, and I think he’s Richard Hayden, who has previously seen in town with horses. Certainly the ponies and dog look the same.
“A horse is not a common sight
to have them near was a delight.”
