|Description ||The Westbury White Horse is immediately to the west of Bratton Camp - its ear touches the top of the outer rampart. The horse was cast in concrete in 1936 and its whiteness is due to paint. Prior to 1936 it was a chalk cut horse, dating back to 1778. Before that there was a chalk horse on the site, but facing in the opposite direction. The earliest records of this first horse date from 1742.|
| Great shot Jim!!!Give us more.|
| Now I look at this again it seems like the horse is dribbling. Not at all prehistoric, but it does make you go hmmm. It could be coincidence to find a big horse and hillfort so close (like the ones at Uffington)? Hillforts are on hills and chalk hillsides are a good place for a highly visible chalk figure, after all.|
| Rotten conformation, nice photo.|
| Nick- If you think this one's bad, have a look at the previous incarnations:|
| Some of them look like Llamas!|
