Guest post

This striking example has found its way into my inbox courtesy of regular poster Geraldine, from County Kildare, to whom many thanks. It’s an old granite gatepost in a meadow, complete with an exhausted Millie who has an exceptional tongue.

    Shamardal lives in Kildare and Rudi comes from the next door county of Meath.

    Nice post.

    That is an exceptional post and the single hole in it makes you wonder what it was used for.

    Millie looks comfortable on that lovely grass.

    Are they horses or dogs, Diva?

    OS, the hole in the post used to hold an iron fitting into which a gate spud fitted; there was another stone on the ground with a hole in it and the lower spud sat into that and the gate could then swing. It’s a very old post which has been in these fields for well over 100 years.

    Millie was exhausted from racing in ever decreasing circles around the post as I was trying to take the photo. She is known here (among other names) as The Dog of Little Brain.

    Hi Geraldine, Shamardal is one of my favourite racehorses who now stands at the Darley Kildangan Stud and the Rudi is my rescue dog from Navan (he types all this for me!)
