Black as night with ivory muzzle and fetlocks, Angus is Merida’s powerful Shire (heavy horse breed) and her most trusted confidant. Angus is Merida’s escape from castle life into the deep forest and the highlands beyond. Merida target shoots from her perch on his broad back and is able to coax him into one adventure after another. Angus can be balky, stubborn and faint-hearted at times, but is ultimately a devoted and faithful friend to Merida.
Merida deeply loves Angus and allows no one but herself to see to his care.
