Todays story is about a Thoroughbred horse named Warrior-a real life war horse(as told by Brough Scott.)

The incredible story of Warrior, the real-life War Horse, has long been a legend in our family.
Bred by my grandfather General Jack Seely in 1908, a couple of miles from his home at Yafford on the Isle of Wight, no horse and rider can ever have been through such a sustained series of adventures. They walked off the boat together at Le Havre in 1914 to join the Western Front, and cheated death a thousand times, surviving all four years of the war from Ypres to the Somme, Passchendaele and Cambrai before returning home where they continued to ride on together.
I’ve always thought it rather sweet and poetic that this sturdy bay thoroughbred gelding was christened Warrior because from the peace and tranquillity of the Isle of Wight where he grew up, he remarkably went on to become one of the greatest warriors of all time.

More on Warrior tomorrow...hope you all have a great day!
