Suffolk Punch Horse Trust

We visited the Suffolk Punch Horse Trust in Hollesley, Suffolk. This is the main breeding stud of the one of the world's most endangered horses. Suffolk punches are heave horses traditionally used for farm work. Chestnut in colour, they stand at about 17 hands high.
We enjoyed walking round the stud which had a number of very sweet foals. We even stroked some of the mares. There were also chickens, goats and pigs to see. It wasn't the hugest place but was certainly a very pleasant coupe of hours.
