Grandpa had a shop selling groceries, fruit and vegetables, he had a horse and cart to deliver to customers. Found this pic taken in the 1950s of the horse. Grandpa died when I was a baby so I don't remember him. Obviously I don't remember the horse....
Well, one of my grandfathers was a vet. Before you think I come from privilege and wealth, the market for "horse medicine" fell apart during the Crisis and there was not yet systematic veterinary inspection of cattle, sheep, pigs or other livestock, not to mention pets.
Wow - how lovely Cheery , even though there are lots of horses where I live I rarely see any being driven. Oddly enough I did last night in my village. I guess people feel safer driving horses with less traffic.
