Boxy & Me

This is the story of an amazing animal – and how he changed my life. I love musical theatre and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s ‘Love Never Dies’ is my all-time favourite song. It’s how I feel about Boxy.
Hallmark Boxster – Boxy – was more than just a bull. It was his spirit, battling through everything thrown at him, that I will always remember with a tear never far from my eyes and a smile in my heart.
Boxy’s life was a constant struggle of overcoming massive hurdles. I’ve had many thrown my way too. Perhaps that was one of the reasons we had such a connection. I’ve never experienced the same with any other animal. Our bond was and always will remain very special. I feel him here with me as I write.
Boxy was an outstanding show bull. He never lost. He won at every show he ever appeared and was even triumphant in the High Court in London during our battle with DEFRA. Through TV appearances he also won the hearts of thousands up and down the country. He certainly won mine long before all that, and I know I won his. I still miss him every time I go across to our cattle shed. I loved Boxy while he was alive, and I still love him now.
Okay. Deep breath.
