Our World Tuesday - Along a Country Road
Just a short distance from Malton town centre, along Castle Howard Road you will find horses and ponies belonging to the Romany gypsies grazing the wide grassy verges. They are tethered with long ropes so they can move around easily, and their owners visit them daily to replenish the large plastic buckets with water, and to move them to fresh grazing when necessary.
The horses and ponies seem to be quite friendly and are not in the least bit bothered by passing traffic. Though it is a country road, it is a fairly busy one.
