    Default Now This is a Nice Matched Pair of Police Horses!

    A demonstration of mounted police work in Scotland with probably the nicest (and BIG) matched pair of police horses I've seen. Got to love the Scottish accent!

    Loved it. I want a bridle like that! Looked like very good quality, and that is hard to find a decent bridle to fit a draft.

    The little pony in the end shot...OMG, that looks like my baby's twin! Same blaze, coloring, etc. He's in my barn right now, otherwise I'd be out looking for him.

    Every so often, a pair of Strathclyde Police horses passes by under my window at work, as they are patrolling the paths and roads around Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. I hear their "clop clop" on the tarmac, and always stop what I am doing to watch them go by. I'm sure I've seen this pair up close too.

    WOW! Those horses were bigger than most of the cars and vans! (Yes, cars are more compact, but still... WOW!)

    Wow, those horses are big! I once took a grown-up "pony ride" on an 18+ hand draft at the Los Angeles County Fair, and the police horses look just about that size, too.

    Impressive! Nothing like the long leg of the law! (and head,and neck, and back, and tail...)
