‘He was found pulling a cart in Ireland and had a burden of tape worms’ — rags to riches cob makes winning start to his showing career

Blue Chip founder Clare Blaskey was overjoyed to watch her own heavyweight show cob Hortons Happy Go Lucky — also know as Milo — win the open show cobs at the recent CHAPS championship show (5—6 September). Ridden by Natasha Dolman, Milo was initially pulled in second before producing a winning show which moved him up the line-up.

I thought, due to his good looks, that he could make a lovely heavyweight cob.”
