Pets of Transport – Meet Glitz!

Please allow us to introduce you to our very first, and very fabulous, horse of transport – Glitz. If Fergie’s song G.L.A.M.O.R.O.U.S. was based on a horse then it would be him. He’s got style, he’s got grace, he’s the IT-horse of the horse world.

Pets of Transport: Nice to meet you Glitz! To start us off, what does your human do at Transport?

Glitz: My human, Kelsey, works in the Corporate Communications team in the Public Affairs and Engagement branch and I’m one out of two horses owned by her family. My brother’s name is Freddie and he’s a little, ugh, slow… if you get what I mean. So when we heard that you wanted to interview one of us, I put my hoof up as I’m the sprightly newbie!

PoT: Yeah, we’ve heard that you’re the new pony around town after retiring from horse racing. How’s it all going?

G: It’s been mag-neigh-ficent so far. Horse racing just wasn’t the life for me and who knew that there was so much to offer on the other side of the paddock fence! I basically get to stand around grazing on grass all day – it’s a horse’s heaven!

PoT: So you’re settling into to the retirement life pretty well then, huh?

G: Oh absolutely, my humans are so nice! You could say I had some horse-shoe luck on my side to get them as my family ;)

Once they got to know me, they learnt that with a name like Glitz I’d be nothing but fabulous! So I’m out here living my best life in my sparkly hoof boots (see below for fabulous visual) and rhinestone saddle blanket.

PoT: Now, give us the dirt. What’s the strangest or most interesting thing your human does?

G: Well, I would say it’s how much she loves the house dog. He sometimes comes with my human when she visits me and he just runs around my legs, barking. I’m not jealous, not at all. And I know it’s not a competition but does he have sparkly hoof boots? Didn’t think so!

PoT: Thanks for chatting with us today Glitz and enjoy the rest of your retirement!
