I'm Colin the horse. I live with my pal Conner at Ambury Farm Park. We have a great time with all the hoomans that visit the park along with our best friend Ranger Janine who makes sure we are both healthy and happy. Come say hello some time.

You might be thinking "A horse can't write web articles!!" - you're right, that's preposterous. I simply manage, moderate, edit and publish content as it comes in from those friendly FoFfy folk. And to think I once thought HTML meant Hay Tickles My Leg...

That's nothing on Conner who's been taking astrophysics course in the hope of being the first Clydesdale into space.
