Watty and Catena
Watty was re-homed by Catherine Neck over 10 years ago as the perfect companion for her thoroughbred. Gentle giant Watty quickly became part of the family so when Catherine’s other horse died, there was no other decision than to find him a new friend. Catherine says “Catena is a very sweet mare and she’s keeping Watty much more active! It’s wonderful to give horses like these a second chance who would otherwise not be wanted. I love them both to bits.”
