- Running away when Chris tried to put on his rug…
Guinness was gentle, but could still protect his small herd with powerful energy. When you saw him gallop by, tail flying out like a banner behind him, muscles rippling, head held high, you hardly noticed that he wasn’t a young colt any more. Guinness helped many people with his kind, but strong ways. He would nudge them in the right direction, and let them know that sometimes it’s better to just slow down from the everyday rush. Take things in Guinness Time.
One person came, who had a lot of fear, and after building a relationship, Guinness helped her to realise that the fear was hers, and she could let it go.
In his 31 years, Guinness touched the lives of people from all over the world. He was a proud, gentle horse, with a huge heart, and the fire and strength of a leader.
