1963 vintage home movie: farrier on a motorbike


Sent to us by Anthea Rocker from Dorset: "This short clip shows how the farrier used to arrive on his motorbike with side car containing the fire for use when shoeing the ponies. The pony being shod was my pony, Laddie, and I was twelve at the time. It was at the time when we had snow from 26 December 1962 which didn't melt till March 1963 - very unusual for in the UK".
