The inter-species communication project the Oracles has expanded from alpacas to Clydesdale horses in year 2015. Clydesdale Oracle aims to ask help and advice for human kind from other species with intuitive interspecies communication – here, with the Scottish land-race draught horses the Clydesdales. The first Clydesdale Oracle was organised in Scottish Sculpture Workshop in Lumsden, Scotland on the Camp Break down Breakdown in July 2015.

The Clydesdale Oracle is a collaboration with Strathorn Farm Stable which is owned by Ruth and George Skinner. They have about 50 horses and ponies altogether, about 15 of them being Clydesdales. All of them live in herds in the surrounding, vast fields of the farm.

Clydesdales breed by humans to be very peaceful, tame and hard-working. Basically, in the times of the fossil energy, they are unemployed. There are only about 700 Clydesdales in Scotland. What do these horses have to say about work in general? What do they think about labour after the fossil era?

Other animals are not only our loyal companions; they are our guides, our healers, our link to the simple wisdom of the natural world. Carol Gurney
