    Beginning in 1815 with grandfather George Forshaw (b.1771) and his Black horse, this hugely entertaining book tells the story of the family of Shire stallion proprietors, renowned for their powerful, prize-winning draught horses. As well as the Forshaws, the book opens up a world - now departed - of 'public' stallions on their 13-week rounds, the men who led them, and the annual shows. No previous knowledge of horses required.
