Socks is 8 year old gyspy cob cross. We've been together since he was just a yearling. He is a much loved family pet and is usually seen heading down to Lumsden village on trips to the local park with our children.

 

I am Derek, 50, dad of 6 children and husband to Donna, who is a well known Aberdeenshire newborn photographer of Small Prints Photography

 

Socks has now reached a stage, where he enjoys working and aims to please,  I established Odd Socks enterprise so I could combine my interest in horsemanship while allowing others to enjoy the traditional forms of transport, traditions and tasks associated with horse driving.

 

You may be thinking its an odd name to give a horse driving business? Socks has 3 white feathered feet, and one 'odd sock' (which is in keeping with the rest of our family !)  With the amount of odd socks that always emerge from our laundry in any one week.

 

I am a full time gardener and handyman and have worked in many trades over the years. I also served as  Watch Manager  within Grampain Fire and Rescue retained service for several years in local community & hold a PVG certificate.
