Having won the hearts of the audience in 2014, Hades and Griffin returned in our 2015 show as ‘The Moon Dogs’. They continue to be firm favourites around the farm and although not appearing in this year's show they are enjoying life on tour with the circus and the stables team.
Cartuchio and Dandi - In October 2014 Nell met with our head trainer Dany Cesar in Barcelona to search for some new horses for the upcoming show Moon Songs. Nell wanted to explore the possibility of finding some rare Cremello or Albino Andulscian horses. They have blue eyes and a luminous cream coat, perfect for a moon show. Working with Tarma from Spanish Horses UK, Nell found what she was looking for in Barcelona, in Cartuchio and Dandi. Jack is a charismatic horse that enjoys performing in the show and being centre of attention.
Longhope - A few years ago Toti and Nell bought a little bay gelding. They called him Longhope. He had been a little overlooked in the yard where he was living, having not seen a farrier or dentist for some time. His old owner got in contact with Nell and he turned out to be a well-bred show pony by a successful show pony stallion called Ainsty Musical Dream. He appeared in the show ridden by the bear. He has proved to be very calm in the ring, is not at all alarmed by the bear and seems to quite enjoy Toti and Nell teaching the dogs to ride him and lead him .He is about 13.1 and looks like a miniature racehorse.
Jim is a Friesian Stallion whose full name is Tsijimke. People think that Stallions are uncontrollable beasts but you would be wrong with Jim. He used to pull funeral carriages before he came to join us in April 2015. He settled in well and has enjoyed his time in the ring.
