In 1974 Sanders Watney wrote a list of Do's and Don'ts to Avoid Driving Accidents for The Carriage Journal. It is still valid today! Here is his Do list:

- Maintain concentration at all times while driving
- Watch your horse's ears, they will tell you what he is thinking.
- Try to distract your horse's attention with your voice BEFORE he has time to take fright.
- If you are driving a "green" or nervous horse, have an active passenger with you who is prepared to jump out and give assistance from the ground if required.
- Make sure your vehicle and harness is sound and in good working order - paying attention to the reins, hame straps and traces.
- Carry the whip at all times as, in order to avert an accident, it may be needed very quickly.
- Adhere to the correct procedure for putting to and taking out on the showground, and ALWAYS take the horse out of the vehicle before removing the bridle.
- If you wish to pass someone, do so with care, not too close and at a reasonable pace. If the other horse appears frightened or "hots up" draw back.
- If anyone has an accident, pull up at once.
- Give clear signals to those behind when turning or stopping.

No dog can be trusted around livestock. Your dog can harm or even kill farm animals and may be put down if out of control on farmland. The owner may also be charged with a criminal offence resulting in a substantial fine.

The stress of being chased is enough to cause animals to die or for pregnant animals to miscarry. Incidents also have a significant emotional and financial impact on farmers.

As we come into the lambing season, we are working with NFU Scotland to remind dog owners to act responsibly when walking on, or near, farmland.

It’s about time!!

New Highway code as of January this is the rule in detail
Rule 215. Indepth wording
Rule 215
Horse riders and horse-drawn vehicles. Be particularly careful of horse
riders and horse-drawn vehicles especially when approaching, overtaking,
passing or moving away. Always pass wide and slowly. When you see a horse
on a road, you should slow down to a maximum of 10 mph. Be patient, do not
sound your horn or rev your engine. When safe to do so, pass wide and slow,
allowing at least 2 metres of space.
Feral or semi feral ponies found in areas such as the New Forest, Exmoor and
Dartmoor require the same consideration as ridden horses when approaching
or passing.
Horse riders are often children, so take extra care and remember riders may
ride in double file when escorting a young or inexperienced horse or rider. Look
out for horse riders’ and horse drivers’ signals and heed a request to slow
down or stop. Take great care and treat all horses as a potential hazard; they
can be unpredictable despite the efforts of their rider/driver. Remember there
are three brains at work when you pass a horse; the rider’s, the driver’s and
the horse’s. Do not forget horses are flight animals and can move incredibly
quickly if startled.

I DID NOT KNOW... by Alissa Kelly

I did not know a horse could bring people into your life that end up meaning the most to you.
I did not know a horse could make the hardest days of your life bearable.
I did not know a horse could teach you to put others first.
I did not know a horse could remind you time and time again that your gut is always right.
I did not know a horse could break your heart.
I did not know a horse could pick you up when you have fallen apart.
I did not know a horse could teach you to dream again, after you thought it was not possible.
I did not know a horse could make you believe in yourself.
I did not know a horse could teach responsibility, work ethic, and dedication.
I did not know a horse could make you believe in something when no one else does.
I did not know a horse could make you learn to forgive and forget.
I did not know a horse could humble you faster than you can say humble.
I did not know a horse could make you a winner.
I did not know a horse could also teach you how to lose gracefully.
I did not know a horse could instill patience in you.
I did not know a horse could make you listen better.
I did not know a horse could give you their heart.
I did not know a horse could change your life.
I did not know a horse could do all these things...
but now I know. ❤️❤️

Team Galcantray Clydesdales, were at Teen Ranch Show today. We took our newly weaned foal, who was an absolute legend. Took it all in his stride 💙 he was 2nd in his class to the male champion. Then the dude that is Clyde, was 2nd in a strong gelding class!! He then went out with a very capable young handler Blythe Duncan, and they came out with a red rosette 🥇🏆she won the Blythe trophy, that was presented to the show by, Granny and Grandad, Benny and Isobel Duncan, when Blythe was born. The first time she has ever won it!! Well done Blythe 🎉. Congratulations to the Black family on winning the overall champion, and to Ron, Helen and team for reserve overall, with John and Margo Mcintyres filly. Last but not least team Galcantray ably headed up by Adam Balfour, and his glamorous assistant Kirsty Squires! Thank you for all the hard work team Galcantray... dream work makes the team work 😍

Well done Galcantray Clydesdales!
I've been watching BBC's Clydesdale - Saving the Great Horse. Not sure if you liked this documentary but as one who loves seeing your Clydesdales but knows very little about this beautiful breed; I found it most informative and made me realise the importance of your horses. Take care all. :) x
I had a lovely journey along the local lanes yesterday; and all thanks to you! Firstly I viewed the four donkeys - always a favourite animal of mine - in the field on the bend ascending the hillside from the Farmhouse; then near to the farm, one of your vehicles was slowly guiding some 9 Clydesdales’ through the gate, from one field to another, their large size almost completely obliterating the small vehicle! So ‘Thanks’ to one and all; I’m just glad to be there at the right time to see these sights. Lizzie - Admin Sparrow's Rest at Our Stone Farmhouse in the Highlands.
We are delighted to have Galcantray Clydesdales back this year with there display this year in the main ring . Keep your eyes peeled in the afternoon for these , We are sure you won’t miss them !! Photo credit to : moyra gray photography

Around 1952 I was acquainted with a Clydesdale stallion which was in seaonal residence at the Myles Farm , Tranent. The travelling groom was Harry Henderson. The owner of the stallion was a Mr Hugh McGregor from Balinton in Stirlingshire. In the publicity leaflet there was, of course, a photo of the horse but what was so memorable about it was the caption which read "I hae a brute o' gallant mettle As ever drew upon a petal". Such an apt description. Its name was CAWDORDENE.
