The president of the Clydesdale Horse Society, Tom Tennant, opens up his farm to the general public during the Borders Festival of the Horse. This was from the first time I attended, and judging by the photo, almost my last!
In one field, there was six mares and foals roaming freely - meaning that you could get some nice photos if you persevered!
Storm, the other resident stallion:
Just before we left, Tom invited Susan and I to have a look at his mares - this one is Storm's mum, Tara:
These were taken a year later. This 18hh gelding was the newest addition to the herd:
A chestnut filly...

This little guy didn't want to come very close...

I love this picture - he just looks as though he's thinking "Dude, what you doing??"
