Daniel the Horse Retires Thimble

£8.95
At the age of 22, Daniel, the Queen’s favourite Windsor Grey, has certainly earned his retirement. Having spent the past 15 years drawing the Queen's carriages as a member of the Royal Mews, he is probably one of the most famous steeds in the land. Her Majesty’s love for her favourite horse has seen him immortalised in a life-size bronze sculpture, feature on the face of a Royal Mail stamp and saw him placed at the head of the carriage carrying William and Kate to their wedding in 2011. Windsor Greys have been drawing carriages for the Royal Family since the reign of Queen Victoria.
