Five things you didn’t know…

1 He loves having a fuss made of himand would never dream of kicking or biting.

2 He’s so laid-back that he’s been known to have a rest and fall asleep on the dummy mare on occasion.

3 He’s a typical teenager. He loves his bed and would happily sleep forever. He needs rocket fuel feed to liven him up.

4 Two of his yearling fillies have already jumped out over big hedges and fences, so he’s definitely passing on his jumping genes.

5 He gurns when you scratch him.
