Lovejoy and Tinker
Alfie has had Lovejoy and tinker since they were 6 months old, they have quite often be seen at shows with children riding on their backs and they have given many a person a memory for life. Eight years ago Alfie raised funds for children in need, in conjunction with radio Cornwall and raised over £3000. We quite often go to local schools and fetes. We like to support the local events. Lovejoy and Tinker were the start of Pikna Shire Horses, they were an inspiration to many and loved by all they will be forever in our memories and never forgotten.
Angel and Bravelad
Angel and Laddy have been working together from the ages of 3 and 2, they've raised money for charity, they've lead the torchlit carnival in St Austell as we as many others. They have a really strong bond with each other and more often than not act like a married couple.
