Just watching trooping of the colour with my Mum and I am trying to tell her about it, but I can't find anything on line. What is his name? I know he's huge and black
Will ask my neighbour about him.All the regimental horses are trained just down the road from us,someone will know.
Do you mean Burmese ?Don't know about him having a rank in the army though, thought that was the drum horse, but I may be wrong there.
Yes, apparently they are assigned the rank of major when on parade, a bit of info hereIt's funny the bits of trivia that your brain holds onto, isn't it.
Yes, it's the drum horses. When Clare B was doing her bit in the stables she mentioned one they have in training - he's 20hh - imagine the vertigo!
the slightly nutty roman emporer caligula, made his horse, incitatus, a senator!
I missed this program, was in front of Buckingham palace that morning but didnt realise what was going on and had a hungry toddler to sort out. bummer.Could somebody link me to the iPlayer?
Is it Digger? He's the 20h drum horse, my kids & I met him when we went on tour of the calavary stables.He is HUGE!!!!!
