Alright, then.  Ross Poldark was a dark chestnut with a noble head, could jump like a stag, gallop for up to three miles and was clever enough to negotiate the Grand National course. Apparently, he was a bit of a superstar in his day.  Does all this ring any bells?

No more to tell, really, Namps.  It's all in the small print...

Mooching round the bookshop (again) the other day, I idly picked up a newly published volume and flicked through it.  My eyes were immediately drawn to a chapter entitled Ross Poldark!

It describes him as a large, strong, good-looking aristocratic being.  This all fits thought I.  Intrigued now?

 

 

 

 

 

The book, Clare Balding's, 'My Animals and Other Family'.  Ross Poldark, her father's horse.......
