Percheron Horses – growth and maturation

Our wonderful Percheron horses Ollie, Olwyn and our 7-month-old foal Sampson (pictured) will be taking a short break from us here at the Museum, as it is time for Sampson to be weaned from his mother Olwyn.  During this time away together, Olwyn and Ollie will both be undertaking some refresher training from mid-February onwards and will return in due course.  The weaning and training will take place off-site, in a quieter environment, whilst we get ready to welcome all our visitors and members during our half term week of exciting activities.
