Introducing Our Horses:

Jabez

Jabez thinks showbusiness is the ideal life, after all:

“All the world’s a stage,  And all the men and women merely players.“

15hh Chestnut Arab

born 23 August 2003

Breezy

This is Breezy, he is a Sagittarius who likes knitting and flower arranging.

 

15.3hh Buckskin Arab/ Thoroughbred/ Percheron/ Quarterhorse

born 14 November 2006

Magnus

If you want to know who’s really running the show, just talk to Magnus! sometimes he’s the only one of us who actually knows what’s going on.

 

15.2hh Bay Thoroughbred from a station mare

Rocky

A young horse not long off the racecourse, Rocky is one of the new boys on the block. he enjoys fresh greens and likes simple adjectives, such as good and bad and fast.

 

Bay Thoroughbred

Chaska

Chaska is an ex-racehorse with a tendency to rear, she couldn’t make a carreir on the racecourse and didn’t fancy being made into lion-chow, so she enlisted. Her raw power and speed are impressive to see.

 

15.2hh Bay Thoroughbred born 2004

Calibre

Calibre is a perfect gentleman… until he suspects you may be hiding licorice in your pockets at which point he will unceremoniously nose about your person until he finds it… all of it!

 

15.2hh Burnt Buckskin Arab/ Thoroughbred/Percheron/ Quarterhorse

born 13 September 2012

Noddy

It’s hard to ruffle this chap. Noddy is always cool, calm and collected… well, at least cool and calm.

 

15.2hh Bay Standard Breed

Hayley Jane

If the “Old Grey Mare just ain’t what she used to be,” It might be because Hayley’s done this routine so many times she can do it with her eyes closed.

 

15.2hh Flea-Bitten-Grey Thoroughbred born 1994

Gaza

In this rare picture, Gaza does not have his tongue hanging out the left side of his mouth! He enjoys spending time in the great outdoors and his best friends are the honeybees.

 

Bay Thoroughbred

Ted

A gentle giant, Ted loves to please everybody... and generally succeeds.

17.3hh Clydesdale

John

If there is a conspiracy theory doing the rounds, it was probably started by John. He’s that kind of guy.

17hh Clydesdale

Khan

Khan is the new kid on the block. He loves cocktails in the afternoon and is always the centre of attention… whenever he can find out where it is.

 

14hh Palamino Quarterhorse
