Charlie, our little spotted gelding – he is such a gentle, calm
soul and is Anna’s “go to” horse for any first time visitor to Spark of Hope. Charlie is a bit of a loner and can find the rough games that the other horses play too much – happy to watch rather than be involved. He is a sensitive horse who has a habit of “zoning out” and going to his happy place if he feels like he is under too much pressure.
Likes: being brushed and patted – especially by new people and little people
Dislikes: playing rough house horsey games; going on the float; Sparky leaving him!
Best friend: Sparky, Smokey
Favourite food: Licorice, Lucerne hay, Nutri-grain!
Fun Fact: Despite suffering from arthritis, Charlie is extremely flexible and can put his head between his front legs
