Horses' New Year's Dinners 1916

1 mins United Kingdom

There's no sign of any New Year's diets or detoxes going on at the Cricklewood Home of Rest for Horses. Instead, the retired nags - former London cab horses and military steeds, are treated to a well-earned feed by a well-to-do looking crowd (and a soldier in uniform). The film singles out Marlborough, the old charger of the late Lord Wolseley, a renowned Victorian war hero.
