The Shire is one of Britain's rare breeds and the beautiful Shire horses above live at the Wimpole Estate in Cambridgeshire.
They are busy doing carriage rides, experience days and ridden work, such as musical ride displays.
They spend their days in the field or working, or on display at the farm, so visitors can say hello. The plan is to expand their work into agricultural jobs such as harrowing and ploughing.
Visitors love them, and the National Trust needs your help to care for them. They all reuqire food, bedding, dental visits, vaccinations and new shoes to keep them happy and well.
