Artist's description:

Clydesdale horses have been used to work the land on farms in the British Isles, Europe and North America for centuries. For the most part, these powerful work horses have been replaced by modern tractors and other machinery, but there are many people who still keep these mighty draft animals for logging, small farm operations, parades, horse pulls and ploughing matches, and even just for pets.

The team pictured here are pulling a "Scottish rig", single-furrow plow, turning the sod for the ancient farmer who holds the reins and guides them with a steady hand. I painted this picture in memory of my father, who was born in 1906 and worked with heavy horses much of his life.
