I like that a lot too! I don't know if you've seen it but there was a series on television several years ago now following a year on the farm of a chap called John Dodd who lives at Sillywrea near Langley in Northumberland (DM434's neck of the woods). This chap still farmed entirely with Clydesdale horses and the programs follow him through the year ploughing, working land and drilling, then on to haytime and through the autumn and into winter. It would certainly be worth watching if you have an interest in heavy horses and the equipment used with them. You can still get it on DVD, its called "The Last Horsemen" and it is just nice viewing.

Thanks for passing on the information on the Last Horsemen, I had a quick look on YouTube, looks very interesting.

The idea for this model actually came from a locally made video showing the hay cart in action as mentioned by Tractorman810 above.

When I posted my pictures yesterday there was something about the model that did not look right to me and eventually it came to me the winching handles were too large, I was to concerned to fit the handles to the brass brackets I never thought of the scale size of them.  A bit of pairing on them has helped to reduce their size and to me look more like the real thing.
