Thanks Isandula, great post.

It serves to demonstrate just how hidebound the Army still was in 1879. Two Colonels and a Lt. General having to approve the amount of forage for a horse!
No wonder any hint of taking the initiative frightened them all to death.
Very little had actually changed since the administrative nightmare in the Crimea 25 years earlier.
Bye the bye, why did English horses require more forage than Colonial?

Steve,  I think English horses were use to being heavy grain fed and thus required more than say the native Basuto ponies.
