The Spirit of Cameron

The Spirit of Cameron by Robyn P MurrayWhat did Cameron and Roger the Rooster decide to do for their Ambury Park Farm friends who wore Gumboots as a big surprise for Christmas?

 

The Spirit of Cameron is still felt in Ambury Park Farm. People talk fondly of the big Clydesdale Horse who had lived for years at the farm after retiring from pulling big carts full of barrels in Auckland City.  Cameron died some years ago and a strong Kauri Tree is planted in the park to remember him.  He came to the Park in 2004 and had a quiet nature allowing him to be around the thousands of children who visit the Park each year. He had his own ‘horse port’ and a special platform was built to allow the children to brush him.  He was a gentle giant, wonderful with children and he loved prams.  I remember seeing a fearless 2 year old Kate holding her hand up to stop Cameron’s head coming down to her pushchair looking for food.

Cameron the Clydesdale horse will always be remembered with affection by Janine, all the volunteers and visitors to Ambury Park Farm.

This picture book may be enjoyed by older primary school age children.
