Heavy horse power... <br />
<br />
Farmer Robert Sampson uses massive Percheron heavy horses on his farm at Harbridge, near Ringwood in Hampshire.<br />
<br />
Robert doesn't use a tractor to work the land insisting on traditional horse power, he is a fifth generation farmer on the farm which his family have worked with horses since 1885.<br />
<br />
It takes him three times as long to till the land as it would with a tractor, but Robert insists the economic benefits as well as his enjoyment more than make up for the slightly slower progress.
