Once we had made a fuss of the dogs and cheered Oxford to victory watching the boat race coverage on the beeb it was decided a quick drive to see the white horse up close was called for. Here are the jolly party bracing the winds (it was really quite blustery indeed up there)

But the views were well worth the inhospitable weather.

The Wiltshire (or Westbury which is actually where its situated) horse is made out of concrete rather than the chalk its Oxfordshire cousin the Uffington Horse is filled in with. We managed to get right over the top of it so here is a close up, the black bit you can see is its eye, although as Jam’s dad noted its more effective if you are stood far away and you can see the outline for miles (very useful for navigating by as well).

Goodbye horse of the hill, no doubt we shall see you again soon.
