Murphy is one of the taller Shires here at Wimpole, we initially bought him in to help pull the big wagon.  He is broken to ride and drive although due to health problems he had to have a few years off.

Happily now Murphy has recovered and has been able to join the working team again, helping with the light work of the experience days.

Murphy loves attention and meeting new people. His favourite thing is a good scratch and a groom and he will quite happily tell you off for stopping with a bump of his nose.
