Major's story

Mighty Major was a big friendly giant who loved attention! At 17.3hh he was also the tallest resident at the Sanctuary. Major was a very handsome and engaging chap who came to Redwings when the rare breeds country park where he lived was forced to close. He loved people - especially cuddles - so was a hugely popular Adoption Star. Very sadly, Major was retired from the Adoption Scheme in 2017 and passed away in 2019 due to chronic lameness issues and worsening ataxia (lack of coordination in his limbs). We'll never forget this very special boy.
