History of the Clydesdale Horse


The following pages will be found the articles, reports, and correspondence which have appeared from time to time in the public press, during the last decade, on the important question of the improvement of the breed of horses of the Clydesdale type.

The Introductory matter, which is taken from the Dumfries and Galloway Courier, first appeared in the month of July, 1866. It gives forth the ideas of an advanced breeder (whoever he may be) of that most useful type of horse. The remainder of the volume has been culled from the public press.

It contains all that can be called interesting or instructive of the many things which have been spoken and written on the subject. Some of the letters, moreover, particularly those of “Farmer Wiseman,” are very amusing. They have been collected, and are now given to the public in the form of a handy volume. They thrash out a subject deeply interesting to the agriculturist, and it is to be hoped that if its perusal do not instruct or amuse, it will at least give offence to none.
