About me

Companion Home to Home

Hi my name is Bankes I am a handsome Thouroughbred Gelding looking for a new home as a Companion.

I am currently out in a Blue Cross home but it seems my unknown past is catching up with me and I am no longer bale to be ridden so I am now looking for a new home as a pampered Companion. I am good to handle in all ways and love fuss and attention. Once I am settled as I currently am in my new home I am happy to be left for periods of time.

My ideal home would be where I am a companion to a horse of similar size and type as me. I do need to have front shoes on as I get sore feet without them.
