Clydesdale Poster of the Year

Here's the thread to select the Clydesdale Poster of the year, from the nominations in the thread. Use the attached poll, which will appear shortly after the thread does. I'll be sticking it and the poll will run for a week.

I've come to learn 10Wheels has a very dry, almost British, sense of humor. It takes a second to realize the genus in some of his posts in other forums, lol.

For instance, my new hero is an apparent 3 legged Donkey.

You are right. Look at my posting time. Sleep deprivation has damaged my sense of humor.

Me grandpapy was born in 1884, Radstock, Somerset, England.
He became a Coal Miner at the age of 10 years.
