Hovis the Horse’s Eighth Book Will Hit the Shelves This Month

Diaries told from the viewpoint of a horse called Hovis go on sale this November, with all profits from the book’s sales going to Bransby Horses.

‘Hovis’ Friday Diary, Laughter, Lameness and Lockdowns’ by Lincolnshire-based author Karen Thompson, will be formally launched at the Your Horse Live event on November 11- 13. 

The book, which is a collection of diary entries from a regular Friday feature in Horse and Hound magazine, will then be available to buy online. 

Karen said: “With the costs of living rising in ways not seen in a generation then the number of abandoned equines is looking likely to reach levels never seen before, as people have to face heartbreaking choices.


“Bransby Horses offer a safe haven to those (horses) who have been abused, abandoned and neglected. And they do it brilliantly. 

“As one person I can’t do that for other horses but Bransby Horses can. And this is me doing what I do, to help them raise money to do what they do best.”

With a huge Facebook following Hovis’ Diaries have been around since 2008. 

In his latest book, fans are promised lots of laughs and a few tears along the way. 

Bransby Horses is dedicated to improving the lives of horses, donkeys and mules. With public support, the charity is working harder than ever to continue making positive differences to equines. Founded in 1968 by Mr Peter Hunt, Bransby Horses is now one of the UK’s largest equine welfare charities, currently responsible for around 1000 equines, many of whom come from situations of neglect and mistreatment.
