– I think I’ve done my horse justice.”

She has seen the horse first hand too: “At 10am I was up and I heard this loud roar and I thought: ‘What the Hell is that?’

“But no, it was just the horse, the horse was roaring, there was a lot of noise – it’s pretty much the only times I’ve ever heard that noise.”

Ms Wood said the horses had a good time getting along.

“We were running out of water.

“They used to do it everywhere. They always had a hole or a trough – it was just like a horse’s water trough.

“They ran round the paddock, past the feeder and it would fill up all the way.”

“We used to have the big ones on the field – he was like the big colt; he was just a big beautiful colt.”

He remembers riding them until they were nearly 10 years old.

“They were probably between 8ft [2m] tall when we put them out there,” he said.
