We are very lucky to look after three wonderful horses: two large retired horses called Dahresh and Monty, and one charming miniature shetland pony called Marlene.
Monty is a cob horse and might in the past have been used to pull carts – he’s certainly big enough to do so! He’s very friendly and likes being scritched.
Marlene is too small to be ridden (she’s only 39 inches tall!) but our co-farmers can brush and groom her, lead her, learn about her needs, bring her in from the field, and feed her.
