The times they are not changing down on Jonathan Waterer's Devon farm.
He still uses a team of magnificent Shire horses to work his 100 acre property near Barnstaple, just as it was done for hundreds of years before the arrival of the internal combustion engine.
His magnificent heavy horses - which weigh nearly a ton and can be well over 6ft at the shoulder - are much cheaper to run than gas guzzling tractors, as Mr Waterer grows oats to feed them and the only other food they need is grass.
Mr Waterer says 'the traditional methods may be more time consuming, but I feel it is part of our identity and we can reap the benefits'
