The Biggest Feet in Sark
It’s official! Glenside Ronaldo, usually known as Ron, has the biggest feet in Sark. The three-year-old Clydesdale arrived in Sark in April and belongs to Helen Magell. Born in Scotland, Ron arrived in Sark via the Cheshire Shire Horse Centre and was trained in Devon as a carriage horse. For the next few months he is working with Helen and his driver Julie Jackson pulling a small training buggy while he gets used to the island’s lanes and builds up muscle but he should be doing light carriage work by the end of the summer. Helen is delighted with her new member of staff whose progress will be followed by the Island Parish TV series being filmed here over the next few months. According to the local farrier, Ron has the biggest feet in Sark and especially large shoes have had to be ordered for the young horse. Let’s just hope he’s finished growing!
