The Huge Horses is a magazine story.
It is the day of the Great Horse Show on Sodor. Thomas sees some magnificent, big horses pulling a load of barrels. His driver explains that they are big, strong Shire horses, who used to work on farms. Thomas tells Terence about them, but Terence thinks they are not as strong as a tractor. Later, Terence's caterpillar track splits in two and he slides down the embankment, into a muddy ditch. Thomas fetches the horses to pull him out and they do, easily. Terence admits that perhaps they are as strong as tractors.
