Samson Retired

Samson, also known as ‘Scampi’, joined us from South Wales Police. At 16.3hh and being a Clydesdale X, Samson really is a strapping lad, and with a gorgeous roman nose he’s pulling his weight in the looks-department too!

After 10 years of loyal service and following a tendon injury, the difficult decision was made to retire then 19 year old Samson. Throughout his career, Samson could always be relied on to perform every job to an exceptional standard. Some of his career highlights include patrolling at the 2012 London Olympics, working at Royal events including the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and attending the Welsh Football Home-coming Parade in 2013.
To say it was an emotional farewell with South Wales Police would not be enough; they told us Samson will really be missed by his human pals at the SWP.
