    Horses at a rest home in London get a New Year treat.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "... and here's another 'Joy Day'! aged inmates of Home of Rest for Horses enjoy many an extra tit-bit on New Year's Day."

    Stables at Home of Rest for Horses (possibly in London). Pan along stable door with horses sticking heads out.

    People collect handfuls of food to feed to the old horses.

    Various shots of people feeding horses. Shot of a boy feeding a horse.
