I was going through some old photos recently and I found a few that I took at the 1986 Cheshire Show. I was amazed to see 5 pairs of grey shirehorses pulling a relatively small dray. It’s that long ago that I was using old colour slide film and had to scan them to convert them to digital images so the quality isn’t very good. Because of their size and shape it was difficult to photograph well. As I recall the commentator saying this was purely for a demonstration. You would never get 5 pairs pulling a small dray. This sight may never have been witnessed before and may never be seen again. Unfortunately, I don’t have any details of the horses or owner(s). I’m glad to say my filing system helped me to find them within an hour.
