Description in one word Proud
Equine best friend: Diamond

Horus came to us with Millie from Happy Endings Sanctuary who had rescued them both from the most appalling conditions. He had seen a lot of neglect and suffering and had huge emotional scars. Understandably, he was deeply mistrustful of humans and initially wouldn’t let anyone near him.  Suffering from stringhalt, he also had been gelded extremely late (in his twenties!) and often showed stallion tendencies, which did not make it easy to integrate him with the rest of the herd. But after lots of patience and kindness from our team, he learnt to be calm and to trust again.  He resides in our thoroughbred group taking his role of herd leader very seriously and is a striking figure in our herd.  He is a very handsome boy that is still able to turn the heads of the mares at the Sanctuary, despite his age!  He also is a firm favourite of the team here, such is his gentlemanly manner and he has been known to snore gently whilst relaxing with the team!
