The Suffolk Punch was developed in the 16th century for farm work. During wartime, it also pulled artillery. However, with the mechanisation of agriculture, this draught horse lost popularity and numbers dwindled until it almost disappeared.

Numbers have slowly improved, but the breed is still listed as critical by the UK Rare Breeds Survival Trust. The Suffolk Horse Society records the UK population at less than 500, which makes them more critically endangered than the black rhino.

Suffolk Punches are always chesnut in colour. (The traditional spelling, still used by the Suffolk Horse Society, is without the middle ‘t’). They are shorter than other heavy breeds but more massively built, with a short back and a broad rump. They have an arching neck, sloping shoulders and short strong legs.

Hamish’s Suffolk Punch sculpture depicts a proud, well proportioned standing stallion, patinated in the traditional chesnut colour.

“A huge thank you to Bruce McKim of Thorpeley stud and his wonderful stallion Jenson for being so helpful in the making of this sculpture.” (Hamish Mackie)
