All about The Suffolk Horse (also known as The Suffolk Punch)

2024-05-23T11:13:39+00:00

If you've seen the film 'War Horse' you'll be familiar with the way horses were used in the First World War and The Suffolk Horse was used for pulling guns and heavy supply wagons. The breed is a true icon, always chesnut in colour (this is not a spelling mistake by the way, but the traditional Suffolk spelling of the word). In medieval times oxen were used for farm work. Over the centuries horses took over because a horse collar is more efficient than a yoke for pulling. By the early 1940s farm horses were starting to be replaced by tractors. ...

Protect yourself against rural fuel theft

2023-12-08T09:25:52+00:00

With rising fuel prices, thieves are targeting rural properties and businesses for valuable oil. A 1,000-litre tank can be drained within minutes and a tank that’s not properly protected will make an easy target for thieves looking to make some quick money. Fuel thieves traditionally target farms during the longer winter nights as the extended cover of darkness gives them more opportunities to get away with the theft unnoticed. These criminals often use just a basic tube to siphon away the fuel but more sophisticated apparatuses – such as pumping systems – have been reported by police. With some tanks costing ...
