Wadworth Brewery Shire Horses Enjoy A Pint Of Beer Before Summer Holiday (PICTURES)

A pint of beer, a giddy-up and slap on the bum before being sent on holiday. It sounds like the perfect way to start a well-earned vacation - and that's just what this is for shire horses Monty, Max and Prince.

The trio are among the last remaining working shires working in the UK brewing industry and work 50 weeks of the year delivering beer to pubs around the Wadworth Brewery in Devizes, Wiltshire.


Get that down ya: A horse glugs down a beer

Each handsome dray horse was given his own pint of beer before being released into a field for their annual two-week holiday.

Seeing as they spend so much time delivering the stuff it seems only right they should sample the merchandise themselves, no?
