This short observational documentary offers a heart-warming account of two elderly men whose job it is to shovel manure at 'Tattersalls Horse Auctioneers’. Eddie Edwards, 82, and Barry Cooper, 75, have spent their whole careers working in horse racing as stable boys and jockeys, but they wouldn’t fall for retirement easily. Even broken ribs couldn’t keep them out of the sales ring. So keen to be a part of the industry they live and breathe, they readily do the job few would accept. Their jolly camaraderie provides the perfect soundtrack.
