Welcome to Hank and Mayo, the latest members of the Bristol Vet School teaching team! They will be teaching students and saving lives...

Hank has recently retired from Avon and Somerset Constabulary mounted section, where he was known as PH Wilfred VC. Mayo has recently retired from active service with the Army.

Hank and Mayo will spend a lot of time relaxing in the paddocks but also will be teaching horses, allowing the veterinary students and veterinary nursing students to learn practical skills like listening to their heart, lungs and bandaging. They will also be onsite to help out any critically ill horses that occasionally need a blood transfusion.

Hank and Mayo truly are gentle giants so we're thrilled they'll be spending their retirement with us.
