Piper and Maggie arrived at HHH HQ from Camden Sale yards. A bit under condition from stress and travel, Piper is an unhandled percheron cross brood mare of 5yo and Maggie is her beautiful 4.5 month old filly. Maggie's dad is a lovely regd clydesdale named Highgate Flash Benjamin and we believe Maggie is going to be a stunning grey mare when she grows up. She is a very solid clydie build and a cheeky dispostion. She is very curious but totally unhandled.
We will give them time to settle in and will start training with them once Maggie has been weaned - that way Piper doesn't have to stress about protecting her baby.
Maggie has now been weaned and both girls are thriving!! Maggie is now a well handled and snuggly ball of fluff. Piper still has some issues to work through, but she will be in HHH Manda's capable hands to learn that people aren't all bad and that handling her doesn't have to be traumatic.
