”IT’S bloody hard work, but someone has to remember how to do it.”
That’s the way Vicki Higgins describes her passion for farming traditionally.
And by traditionally, we aren’t talking about a cute 1960s model John Deere tractor – we are talking about farming using a tonne of horseflesh.
Vicki and her husband Bill are proud members of the Heritage Draught Horse Club, a small group of people who are determined to preserve our history, one giant hoof at a time.
Although she was born in an era when horses were already phased out, Vicki was nonetheless a rider from a young age.
Her father, a jockey, probably passed on the genes – and in one form or another, Vicki has had horses for most of her life.
