Think this must be earlier than 1960. On the right Jane Cromarty then Rosetta Sinclair -not sure of the others ! (may be Mary Markland next to myself )

Rosetta, could the ploughman on the left be Austin Hourston? Whose horse were you? Date?

Recognised my mum Rosetta Sinclair then realised she'd been here first!!

I was Stanley Robertson's horse . It must have been about 1958 .

Horseman on left Austin Hourston .

Horse 3rd from left looks like Bertie Thomson. Fairly sure the ploughman on left is Austin.
