Shire Horse - Stanley

Shire horse Stanley in the paddock


  • Breed: Shire
  • Date of Birth: 2010
  • Height: 19hh
  • Colour: Strawberry Roan
  • Lived at Wimpole since: September 2019
  • Identifying marks: His unusual red and white speckled coat and his very long white legs

Stanley is a gentle giant, standing at 19hh he is the tallest of al our horses. He is a true softie though, loving cuddles and scratches from the heavy horse team as well as the visitors. He loves nothing more than putting his head over his stable door to say hello to everyone.

We bought Stanley because he has got lots of experience in pulling carriages so he can help Jasper with the carriage rides. Moving onto more agricultural work with the horses too, Stanley is going to be a very important part of the team as he has pulled lots of different styles of vehicle and is a very experienced driving horse. 

Due to his very unusual colouring Stanley is very easy to recognise and to spot out in the field. He has very quickly become a firm favourite with our visitors because he is just so friendly.
