Description in one word Wise
Equine best friend: Blesk

Casper came to Mane Chance as we were asked to help the RSPCA who had horses in their care following the closure of another Sanctuary.  He has a gentle charm despite his rather large stature, and he is calm too – acting as a wise owl-type figure in his herd.  Quite often, when the others in his herd are having a little run-around, he chooses not to partake and just watches them from afar – almost as if he has decided that life doesn’t need to have that much movement in it!  But don’t be fooled, if he wants to get somewhere fast, he can – he just likes there to be a good reason for the effort, such as a feed!!  He has come into our herd and settled incredibly well – he has a strong personality and knows what he likes but he is dependable and reasoned and doesn’t over-react to anything.  He is not the herd-leader (too much responsibility and effort involved!) but he certainly has a role in the herd – you feel like if any of the others needed advice, he is the one that they would go to!  Casper is a striking figure in our field, not just because of his stature but also his colouring is quite unusual too.  But more than that, he stands out because of his gentleness and patience, and he is a lovely horse to introduce people too – you know you are in safe hands when you are with him!
