‘Alec’ is a very inquisitive horse. He spends the winter grazing with his friend ‘Bobby’. He loves getting lots of attention and meeting people. He progressed to pulling trams in 2018, and can be seen out in regular service.
Alec
‘Amby’ is the joker of the group, always up to mischief. He likes to have a good scratch and will often rub his head on you, nearly knocking you over! If the stable door is left open he will sometimes try to get out to see his friend ‘Charles’.
Amby
‘Andrew’ is a very big and handsome horse. He used to attend the heavy horse classes at our local agricultural shows for a number of years. He looked very smart with his plaited mane and tail. In 2016, he had his final training and is now seen in regular service.

‘Charles’ has a very large white patch up one side of his leg, so he is easy to recognise! If you leave the stable door open he will sometimes try to get out to see his friend ‘Amby’. He loves being groomed and he loves his work.
Charles
‘Douglas’ likes to plod along at his own pace. With his easy going nature, you will see him taking part in events such as Douglas carnival. You will sometimes see him paired up with ‘William’ pulling double decker no.18. In the winter he takes part in local ploughing matches.
Douglas
‘Keith’ was quite excitable when he first started working but has now settled down nicely. He doesn’t wear blinkers, and you will see him bouncing along the promenade, looking at everything around him! In the winter he takes part in local ploughing matches.
Keith
‘Kewin’ has a very long flowing mane, making him very easy to recognise. He loves meeting all sorts of people, and is a very quiet but slightly nervous horse. In 2016, he had his final training and was seen out in regular service. He also works without blinkers.
Kewin
‘Rocky’ is another very stocky horse. His mane and tail are different colours making him easy to recognise! He loves being groomed and is very keen to go to work. In the winter months he takes part in local ploughing matches.
Rocky
‘Torrin’ is a very striking looking horse. He attends the heavy horse classes at our local agricultural shows. He looks very smart with his plaited mane and tail. In 2016, he had his final training and is now seen in regular service.
Torrin
‘William’ is a very quiet and willing horse. In 2016, for the 140th anniversary year, he was paired up with ‘Douglas’. As part of the celebrations, they proudly pulled double decker No.18 along Douglas Promenade.
William
‘Nelson’ was the second of two new additions for 2017. He has had some initial training on the beach and the tram this year. When he has successfully completed his training he will be able to join the others as a fully fledged trammer!
‘Philip’ is easy to recognise due to his coat colour. Years ago he had to have a tumour removed from his eye, but recovered well and returned to ‘tramming’. He is not keen on having his legs washed with the hose, which can be challenging with four white legs to clean every day!
Philip
‘Robin’ is a very solid horse. He used to attend the heavy horse classes at our local agricultural shows for a number of years. He looked very smart with his plaited mane and tail. He has had some initial training and has now progressed to a tram.

‘Harry’ attends the heavy horse classes at local agricultural shows. He looks very smart with his plaited mane and tail. He spent last winter ploughing, and has started his training paired with another horse. Hopefully he will soon be proudly trotting along Douglas Promenade.
‘Blae’ was one of two new additions for 2017. In Manx her name means ‘flower’. She will receive lots of handling whilst in the stables, and in a few years time she will be able to start her training and become a fully fledged ‘trammer’.
