Horus came to us from Happy Endings Sanctuary who had rescued him from the most appalling conditions. He is 26 years old and is such a gentleman in the form of a horse. He is demure, wise and stately, even though his aging limbs sometimes get in the way. He is very settled in the ‘thoroughbred’ herd, surrounded by those that have a similar demeanour. He is a sensitive soul, mostly due to his dreadful background before he came to us, and to be honest, the fact that he trusts anyone again is such a credit to his determination to recover. But he needs calm and peace around him, he wouldn’t be able to deal with the youngsters in the family herd, for example. As long as he feels secure, he is able to give so much back – and give back he does.

But what makes Horus a little different to some is the depth of human relationships that he forms with a number of our staff and volunteers.  He is such a gentle giant and loves quiet time with people; just in each other’s company where few words are needed.  He stands quietly and slowly the head drops a little, the bottom lip droops and his eyes close.  He takes great solace in enjoying moments of respite and he can be such a calming influence to the human too – leaving the cares of their own world behind to spend a few minutes with a huge sentient being.
