'Mixed emotions' as Welsh shire horses head to Middle East

Two Welsh shire horses are leaving Pembrokeshire for a life as military parade horses in the Middle East.

JR was born at Dyfed Shire Horse Farm in Eglwyswrw in 2007 and Joe was born at Tywyn's Caerberllan stud and raised by the Bodsworth family near Llandysul.

Both have been firm favourites at the Eglwyswrw farm but are now embarking on a new life as military drum horses.

They have been bought by a mystery buyer from the Middle East for use in huge military parades.

Mark Cole from Dyfed Shire Horse Farm said there were mixed emotions about their departure.
