Old Photograph Ploughing Match Perthshire Scotland


Old photograph of a ploughing match North of Perth, Perthshire, Scotland. Before Clydesdale horses were available, garrons or oxen pulled the plough.



Tour Scotland video of Scottish Clydesdale horses ploughing a field on visit to Luncarty located Norh of Perth, Perthshire, Scotland. The Clydesdale is a breed of draught horse derived from the farm horses of Clydesdale, Scotland, and named after that region. Although originally one of the smaller breeds of draught horses, it is now a tall breed. Often bay in color, they show significant white markings due to the presence of sabino genetics. The breed was originally used for agriculture and haulage, and is still used for draught purposes today.
