Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Sir Walter Peacock, 23 September 1916

Identifier: Coll-14/9/22/29

Scope and Contents

Peacock writes that it is doubtful whether any of the Devon pack horse breed remains, and provides details about the Norfolk-Roadster stallion that they have been breeding from instead. He also describes several other horses on the Duchy estate. He thanks Ewart for his information on the Percheron breed, although there are difficulties with importing horses from France at present. He would be most grateful if Ewart could advise on any peculiarites to look out for in the horses in the statistical records.
