me in dodgy kit as I had lost loads of weight and my good stuff no longer fitted- everything has since been replaced/sold except the boots and shirt.

and if it is on horseback and has red sleeves then it is Mick M who posts here on occasion.

Young men have often been ruined through owning horses, or through backing them, but never through riding them: unless of course they break their necks, which, taken at a gallop, is a very good death to die

Come join us...come join us...Tudor is so much more flashy than Napoleonic.

With the number of folk that are interested I may one day sort out a foot loon unit which'd be nice :)

And I'll have you know that Quaker has just opened his first gate, and a tricky one at that.

Of course he then drove my knee in to the gate post in his eagerness to get through (OUCH)

And I'll be trying him with a lance for the first time next month, so wish me luck.
(That'll be an 8' pig sticker and not a muddyevil lance)

Good luck- the pig sticker is the noblest of polearms, or so my uncle tells me, but he may be biased as he was Officer's Team for the RHA :)

We're aiming for competing with the Tent pegging Association next year.

Here's most of our herd

Left to right

Kilt (the blind one who tent pegs) Fern (grumpy grey, broken late in life) Quaker (my baby) and Squirrel (the windiest horse in all Christendom)

They are all Garrons except for Kilt who is a Western Isles Highland

Yes, that kind of thing (I forget the proper name) goes back to the 16th century. I thought everyone knew that.

According to this place,

http://www.nspipes.co.uk/nsp/ww3hist.htm

The earliest known set is from the 17th century, so whilst I am sure I have seen reference to Northumbrian small pipes from the 16th century somewhere, i would be interested in finding out the references for the bloke in the photos in the 16th century.

If you have an interest in pipes (of any nationality) the pipe museum in Morpeth is certainly worth a look. It's on the upper floor of the Chantry.

Cheers all- some more piccies may be happening soon over the August Holiday weekend, especially now that I have my ENORMOUS britches finished.

As for the dateline fo the pipes I have to take Paul and Dunmael's word for it but a pedant would point out that Elizabeth ended her reign in 1603 which is the C17th- if only just ;)
