Hamish’s bronze Shire Horse sculpture celebrates the power of the workhorse. Calm, placid and strong, the Shire Horse holds a special place in the hearts and history of our nation. Originally bred from heavy continental breeds, they became an indispensable part of our agricultural and industrial development.

 

I sculpted this Shire horse after seeing the weekly supply of beer from Hook Norton Breweries being taken along the road past my studio to a pub in a nearby village. Shire horses were once the backbone of Britain, and I wanted to celebrate the fact that they are still being used in the traditional way here in Oxfordshire. They are such strong, powerful animals, and what better way to have your beer delivered!
