A horse named Brodick

Two horses and their handlers visited Arran last week as part of a road safety weekend exercise. One called Argyll and the other Brodick, they are named, like motor cars, with a different letter depending on the year they joined the force. Thus Argyll joined the force one year earlier than Brodick. All Strathclyde horses are named after parts of the region and they used to have a horse named Arran but, as they are now only in the year ‘G’, it will be a long time before there is another one. Brodick and Argyll travelled over on the ferry by horsebox and were stabled at Kingscross. They were the first two police horses to come to Arran and there are no plans to repeat the exercise but they certainly attracted a lot of interest wherever they went.
