• Short Summary

    Nice item about working horses from London retiring to countryside stables.

  • Description

    No titles.

    London.

    Various shots showing busy London street scenes. Lots of buses and taxis. Amongst the traffic we see several shots of horses pulling various carts and wagons along.

    Borehamwood, Hertfordshire.

    Cut to M/S of men unbolting a horse box labelled 'Home Of Rest For Horses / Westcroft Stables / Borehamwood, Herts." and leading a horse out. A donkey is led out of the horse box too. The two new arrivals are led past the stables where other horses look on. A vet checks the horse.

    Nice shots of horses gambolling about a field in (comparative) freedom!
