The Horses at Work event day held at the National Waterways Museum at Ellesmere Port on Sunday Aug 11 was enjoyed by many.
John Inch, the manager, had advertised it on Facebook with an earlier photo of Bilbo, maybe taken in 2011. He wrote:
The event day is organised with the help of HBS members Barbara and Ken Catford and other HBS or Boat Museum Society members. Like last year, we had several young crew ( age 17,18) working with older crew to make up 2 crews for the morning or afternoon. Good crowds attended the harnessing and horseboating demos. Bonny enjoyed her outing with the 2 short trips to the winding hole and back. At age 21, she is in semi-retirement now, and just does short trips. A far cry from her Manchester to London journey in 2000.
