Even the horses are social distancing...I suppose they are refusing to use nose bags...

I think the middle one and the one on the right are related

Nice photo Mick, though a pity we can't see their manes blowing in the breeze. The few dashes of red are dandy, as well.

Oh, they're lovely! They look like they're in the queue at the bus-stop!

A former girlfriend had a horse and showed me what goes on at her stables. After teaching me , she was well impressed with my mucking out ( there’s a skill to doing it correctly) . Being around horses is the most amazing experience and one I will never forget . In one of the stables there was a black stallion who didn’t like me one bit , really scary . It was kicking the stable door to get at me . My girlfriend got him to calm down and went inside the stable without any problem . Being with horses so long she knew what to do . Amazing to watch this full on stallion become putty in her hands , yet it wanted to kill me for sure and would have . Thanks for the post Mick .

Aspull is one of the best districts in the Wigan area,
I wonder if any older poeple that lives in Aspull knew
Two of my work mates who I worked with in standish
In the 60s.
