A pint of beer, a giddy-up and slap on the bum before being sent on holiday. It sounds like the perfect way to start a well-earned vacation – and that’s just what this is for shire horses Monty, Max and Prince.

The trio are among the last remaining working shires working in the UK brewing industry and work 50 weeks of the year delivering beer to pubs around the Wadworth Brewery in Devizes, Wiltshire.

  1. While I just don’t believe in giving any horse ale, I just don’t know what on earth got into that stallion!

  2. I think it’s particularly touching too that a large crowd always turns out to cheer them on when they are released to rest and frolic. I was very happy to post this too. A very welcome change from all the doom and gloom we usually see here.

  3. GOOD FOR THEM, makes my heart sing (for a change). Most of our animal news is not nearly this happy. God bless

    1. Thank you Cynthia. It is wonderful to see the joy of these big, hard-working horses run free and kick up their heels. And a brew too. How good is that!
