This is Kinda Neat..........

From The Daily Mail -
"History revisited as 20 Shire horses haul 16-ton Titanic anchor through Midlands just as their forebears did 99 years ago"

"A procession of Shire horses dragging a 16-ton replica of the Titanic anchor has recreated history 99 years after the event.

The £50,000 anchor is an exact copy of the one used on the ill-fated ship in 1911 and was towed from Dudley to Netherton, yesterday.

The original anchor was cast by Hingley’s of Netherton and was hauled to the old Dudley train station by shire horses in 1911."



Not sure if spending that much for a replica was so wise but it's neat to see a 20 horse team in action. I'd like to see video of this.

Yep. I dig work horses.

Gratuitous Picture for a Wednesday Morning-
