On Friday the GSPCA received the largest ever resident in memory of the team.

At 17 hands and 15 years of age the Dutch Warmblood horse called Robbie is settling well at the Shelter, although staff have found out he's bit of a wimp.

Anna Paint Senior Animal Care Assistant said 'Robbie is settling well at the Shelter but he is a real wuss!'

'At 17 hands he is a big lad, but thankfully we have a stable and fields at the GSPCA.'

'The last time we had large animals on site was our 2 donkeys two years ago Naomi and Dizzy, but they certainly weren't as big as this gentle giant.'

'He will certainly need a very special home as he has stolen our hearts at the Shelter, but he isn't ready quite yet.'

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said 'Sadly Robbies owner could no longer care for him and we were approached to help out.'

'Before he can go up for rehoming we want the farrier to update us on his feet, and the vet to give him a once over, but if anyone is interested they can leave their details at reception.'

'There are always animals in need of homes at the GSPCA, although we rarely have horses in.'
