A Tall Order for Azlan at London’s New Year’s Day Parade
Appaloosa Falabella stallion, Azlan, who stands at just 32 inches tall is yet again set to join the 2019 London’s New Year’s Day Parade alongside a selection of other rare breeds to showcase and embody, our multicultural society.
Azlan has strutted his miniature self across the big city for the past three years, becoming a regular on the parade. This year Azlan and owner Hannah have been given the theme of the Antarctic, Azlan will be going as a reindeer and Hannah will be going as an Eskimo!
No stranger to the limelight, the pair were featured on a TV Show called “Teach My Pet To Do That” which was presented by Alexander Armstrong. “The challenge was to train Azlan to answer the door to the sound of a doorbell, which he did incredibly well and we came home with a trophy for “Pet Of The Day” Explains Hannah.
The London’s New Year’s Day Parade will for 2019 be celebrating Britain’s diverse multi-cultural capital with All The Queen’s Horses showcasing plenty of variety amongst its equine participants this year.
The Parade’s theme is ‘London Welcomes The World’ and celebrates our vibrant, multi-cultural society and the visitors who flock to our capital from all over the world. On the 1st January 2019, London will see Norwegian, Spanish, German, Dutch, American horses stepping out along with their equine friends from the United Kingdom.
