We operate K&H Cockington Carriages, we have recently got a miniature shetland called Patrick, who we are training, we hope for him to do therapy for those with dissabilities and mental health. He has already attracted world wide media attention, which is great adverting for Torbay. We need horse transport, for Annie, number 1 ambassador for https://thewarhorsememorial.org so she can go to events to advertise Cockington. Plus we will need transport for Patrick to visit people who would benefit. All this would help us to keep the heritage of horse and carriage in Cockington for many years. It would also benefit the community and aim to help many people.
Patrick has already helped people, by them seeing his photos on social media
"Patrick's daily FB posts are a joy.
Even more so during this very difficult time.
He is without doubt a star and a gentle soul.
Have a lovely Birthday celebration
"You certainly are a treasure Patrick. Love to see you out and about usually on Facebook.
You must be more than a tonic for those looking for comfort, friendship and support.
Your presence is pure therapy !
Keep up the good work Patrick and K and H Carriages Cockington. From Annie X"
"Whenever I have a long day ahead of me or a long week ahead of work. I just have 2 look at pictures of Patrick and I feel happy.

"Hi Kirk. You know my story about how photos of Patrick helped me deal with my dying Mum and how you were invited to the funeral meal at the Drum. You are very welcome to use that for Patrick's birthday emails along with the photo if needed. I would have loved to have come to the Drum to help him celebrate but unable to get there on a weekday. Please give him a cuddle from me from Kay xx"
