At 30 years of age, Sparky is most definitely the senior statesman of our herd. He is a popular horse with many of our program visitors – largely due to his calm nature – with a number of people saying they feel so peaceful when with him. His is a very patient horse and even lets our visitors give him a cuddle or three…

Likes: Being brushed; going for a gallop with Flynn and playing “bitey-face” (a game often played by our horses where they try to bite the other horse’s face while that horse tries to bite theirs) with Banjo

Dislikes: Worming paste, going on the float

Favourite food: Licorice, carrots, watermelon, ginger nut biscuits, carrot cake
