A cheeky Clydesdale whose antics have delighted hundreds of horse-lovers has published a second diary in aid of charity.
Hovis wrote Hovis’ Friday Diary: The Year of The Destroyer following the success of his first book, Hovis’ Friday Diary: From the Beginning, with 100% of the proceeds from both books going to Bransby Home of Rest for Horses, in Hovis’ native Lincolnshire.
The 16.2hh gelding penned both books with the help of his ‘mum’ Karen Thompson, to whom he imparted his hilarious thoughts on life, unrequited lust, getting into trouble and more.
Costing £5.99, the book is available from Bransby’s online shop, where you can also pick up a copy of Hovis’ first book – visit www.bransbyhorses.co.uk/shop/shop.html to get stuck in!
