"Friends . . . have reminded us of "Nellie," a beautiful black mare owned by the late Mr. W. Ridge, of the Albion Dairy, Joy-street [Barnstaple], which lived to the age of over thirty years. "Nellie" will be remembered as a frequent winner in the "tradesmen's turnout" (distinguished by a milk float and shining canisters) at the local horse shows. As a three-year-old, she went through the South African War as the mount of Dr. John Harper, of Barnstaple, who brought her home to England."
North Devon Journal, 4th February 1932
