Girls racing wooly 'steeds'

Photo finish in the sheep-stakes as two Cornish girls race to the line on their wooly "steeds' . The sheep were bottle fed by them as lambs and cared for by the girls who rode them first for fun and later in agricultural shows. John Drysdale grew up in East Africa acquiring an early interest in both photography and animals. He trained at Guildford School of Art and has worked in photo-reportage, advertising and won numerous awards. But perhaps his most memorable work has been in the field of humour, working with children and animals in real life situations.
