The picture below is of Andy Cronie, the ploughman from Balneil in charge of his pair of horses, at a ploughing match.  Andy was a skilled man with the plough and highly regarded by his peers.

The man leading the horses is John Adams from the Cruise farm at New Luce.  He was also a noted ploughman in the district

    Cruise farm had its own Smithy and my husbands great great grandfather was the Blacksmith there in 1851. I imagine these would be the sort of horses he would deal with. Lovely picture.
