White text on front cover, inside the photo:
Bring me a wheel of oaken wood
A rein of polished leather
A Heavy Horse and a tumbling sky
Brewing heavy weather.

This album is dedicated to: The Highland, Welsh Mountain, Shetland, Fell, Dales, Cleveland and the other indigenous working ponies and horses of Great Britain, who, however tiny or great in stature, can truly count themselves as being amongst our Heavy Horses; also, Lupus, Fur, Tigger and Mistletoe - and of course, Shona and young Master James. I.A.

Recorded at Maison Rouge Studio, Fulham, London, January 1978.
Front cover photograph: With thanks to Barley and Sir Jim courtesy of the Courage Shire Horse Centre.
