Danny is typical of the 140,000 odd horses that were recruited by the army in a matter of weeks after the outbreak of the First World War, leaving farms with perhaps one in four horses, in a time when horses were still the driving force behind, or rather in front of, everything. None of the horses would ever return to the farms they were taken from.
