Picture gallery: Horse Power draws in a crowd at Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse
Hundreds of people enjoyed the popular Horse Power event at Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse this weekend where horses were not the only attraction.
The day out at the museum, near Dereham, took place yesterday and featured Suffolk punches, shires a Clydesdale mare and foal, an Ardennes horse and a young percheron horse.
Some 450 people came to the event which showcased traditional countryside activities, including ploughing, muck spreading and related crafts.
Farrier Laurence Ridgeway gave a demonstration on making horseshoes, master saddler, Terry Davies, worked on a new set of bridles for the farm and Ray Hubbard exhibited his collection of horse memorabilia and sang songs.
The visitors not only enjoyed the horses but were also treated to a surprise after a pig on the site had nine piglets.
