At Trot In Time, we love our horses and our tour guides. They are part of our family. Each horse & tour guide does not work 5 days a week. They work 3 days on and 2 days off to ensure they can provide you with the best possible touring experience when visiting Lunenburg.
When Frank came to work for us, I didn’t know if he was going to be a Frankenstein or a Franking Burger. You see he didn’t want to give us his front feet and we had quite a time letting him know that we would not hurt him and shoes would be better for walking. Now his new nickname is rubber legs, and he is just an eating machine.
Duke feels that he is royalty. He loves to walk at a slow pace with a long stride and his head held high. He is well aware that everyone is watching him walk down the street. Duke has another side to him. As soon as he gets home, he loves to lay down and row in any mud puddle that he can find.
Charlie is our dapple grey gelding, from Amish Country in Ontario. ( 2011) He is learning Lunenburg County slang, as part of his training, because Basil’s dutch isn’t very good! He is very friendly and likes to be fussed over, including even getting face washed! Since he is our only grey horse, he is getting everyone’s attention. Being a grey/white Percheron and he loves to be clean and shiny when he goes into Town.
Clifford is a very handsome Bay gelding that came to us from Prince Edward Island. Since his image is so important, he takes a bath everyday that he works and brushes his teeth as well. These things mean allot to him as he has a real soft spot for the ladies.
Berry is our new 2012 model. He is a Red Roan Belgian and really loves to get kisses from everyone.
