If the yeoman farmer riding his carthorse could not afford a riding horse then he certainly could not afford a saddle. A simple rope halter will do for a bridle. Use a piece of 5 amp fuse wire to represent this. A single strand should run from the side of the horse’s nose, in a loop up to the underside of the rider’s hands. Paint the horse in the manner discussed in the attached handbook. The farmer might wear a tweed jacket, and a brown or black bowler hat. His trousers might be brown corduroy, with brown leather gaiters and boots. The farm labourer having had a surfeit of cider, is sleeping it off. It was a common practice for farmers to provide cider for their employees’ lunch. His hat should be brown as should be his corduroy trousers. His smock should be white or cream, probably a bit grubby. These were often elaborately embroidered. While it is true that the cider in its brown and cream flagon would have been provided by his employer, it is extremely doubtful that the sleeping off would be approved of.
