Queenie is our retired brood mare having had 6 foals in her lifetime, 2 of which still live at Wimpole (Jasper and Lady).
Queenie was very successfully shown in hand in her younger years and is a fantastic mother, giving her foals the best start in life.
Having decided that she has played her part in the conservation of the Shire horse breed, we retired her from breeding a few years ago and backed her to ride. She learnt very quickly and really enjoys a hack out around the estate with one of the boys.
Queenie is a very sweet natured horse although takes a little while to warm to new people. She can be very sassy in the herd, easily keeping the boys in line!
