Timmy has one of the biggest characters in the park. He is very intelligent and quite ingenious. He is a bit of an enigma when it comes to his shape – he has quite a round tummy but he can trot and run with the best of them when there is a bit of excitement on site and is often the first around the track to find out what the news is.  Likewise, he is always up for a walk and has been taken on a good few by staff and volunteers around the site.  He is, probably what we would say, ‘big boned’. 

Recently, we split his herd, being a little more frugal with the grass on one side. And Timmy was our champion!  He lost some of the rotund shape he possessed and perhaps had a slightly quicker pace in general, but more importantly for us, it meant that we were doing all we could to ensure his continued wellbeing.  We keep an eye on all our horses for all health conditions, but there is nothing like going back to basics and helping them keep themselves healthy too.  Obviously with winter coming, he will be thrilled that we will allow a few more calories to ensure he is warm and comfortable when the temperature falls but overall, the plan worked!  The only downside to this slightly increased energy that he now has is that he has a habit of letting us groom him to perfection before ably dropping down to his knees and rolling excitedly in the mud, undoing all the grooming work instantly.  We think he might be getting his own back for the dieting……..
