Inhalt

Inhalt"The film shows life and work on two farms in Zeeland, a province in the Netherlands. Here some farmers, for different reasons, have choosen to keep on working with horses of the Belgian 'Underbred-race'. These huge and heavy horses, with their calm and friendly character were traditionally used in this region because of the heavy clay. Nowadays, all farmers with the life-cycle of the horsees. As the story develops, the specific interest of each separat farmer: breeding, show or workpride becomes clear. Their relationship of silent comradeship with the horses free from sentmentality, the rhythm of their days, and their involvment in the well-being of the horses sounds through every scene. Above all, it's a film told with a sense of down to earth humour, about love, life and death and of people that hold on to what is dear to them."
