A really nice picture of a venerable looking horse!
The pickings seem to be rather sparse Rev, are the conditions OK for the pony?
A lovely photo of a lovely animal..thank you.
Ive always wondered how come that boundary post was put in a field next to canal bank.
Mick, the boundaries would have been very precisely marked so that there could be no argument about who was responsible for what in the vicinity; for example Wigan had it's own Borough Police until the 1960's so boundary markers would indicate which places came under Wigan Borough and thise which came under Lancashire Constabulary.
I know that AW but why put one in a field next to the canal bank
Speaking of boundaries, my father used to tell us that if you found a dead body floating in the canal in Wigan and reported it to the police, there was a reward of five bob. If you found a body floating in the canal in Leigh however, the reward was seven and six. It paid you therefore to find a long stick and push the cadaver along the canal and over the boundary, thereby earning an extra half crown. Maybe Albert knows if there is any truth in the story. Oh, and apologies to anyone who only reckons up in decimal.
Mick wondering, thats a scary thought
