    I don't know where this is specifically but my grandfather John Urquhart of the Loans of Tullich (nr Fearn) had a team of shire horses on his farm and he won many cups and medals for ploughing and other farm related competitions at the shows in Dingwall, Tain etc. We have a photo of him wearing very similar clothing to the man on the end but this photos is a wee bit far off for me to see him, but there is a boy 3rd one along who is extremely similar to my father as a boy, Dad used to tell me how the soap flakes were saved up to wash the horses feathers around their feet before a show and how he and his brother David and sister Mhairi had to put linseed oil on the harnesses and buff them til they shone. (As were his Sunday boots)
