MOORELAND CHARLIE

 

FOCIS has committed to the purchase of Mooreland Charlie, an 11year old Clydesdale gelding. Charlie will provide buggy rides for visitors and demonstrate historic farm equipment.

 

We have three Clydesdales but Syd and Max are now in retirement, too old to work and Nellie has not been trained. Charlie has worked in Melbourne and Sovereign Hill and is an experienced horse.

 

Charlie is FOCIS Christmas and New Year present to Churchill Island Farm and will play a major role in maintaining the heritage of farms worked by horses. He will arrive after the summer season as staff need training and development for his management which is best done after the peak period. He also needs to pass a medical examination before joining us.
