Family Affair
W.S Shires was founded in July 2014, in Howe Green, Essex. It is run by the Sheen Family mainly father and son (both William Sheen hence the WS). But it is a family affair with both wifes and children fully involved.

We are proud owners of four Grey Shire Horses, two of which you will see at the show (Shadlac Jack Daniels (Jack) and Flaxley Viscount (Viscount).
William Sheen Snr (Bill) has been working with both heavy and light horses for the past 35 years and will be the driver of the pair on the day with William Jnr grooming.

We started WS Shires due to our love of the Shire horse and have over the past 3 years built up a carriage business carrying out weddings, funerals, proms and promotional events across the Home Counties.

We were fortunate enough to have an opportunity to work with McMullen’s Brewery this past Christmas and have been asked to represent the brewery at the Herts Show 2017 with their newly refurbished Brewery Dray.

Fergus McMullen says “The Brewery is a family business steeped in history being established in 1827 and traditionally operating beer deliveries with the help from Shire horses up until the 1920s. This year for the 190th Anniversary, McMullen’s are proud to be partnering with W.S to celebrate the brewery’s heritage and tour the restored dray in the local community over a series of dates, making this a true throwback event for all to enjoy! ”
