A Pair of Shire Horses - Francis Riley

The term "Shire horse" was first used in the mid-17th century, and incomplete records begin to appear near the end of the 18th century. During the 19th century, Shires were used extensively as cart horses to move goods from the docks through the cities and countryside. The Shire horse was originally the staple breed used to draw carts to deliver ale from the brewery to the public houses.
