When Scottish Ladies Showjumping Champion Maggie Nimmo married British Commonwealth Wrestling Champion Andy Robin, she knew that her family plans would be a little unusual, for Andy came with a 9 month old Grizzly Bear in tow.

Hercules lived with Magie and Andy for 25 years! Years filled with fun and laughter, drama and excitement.

Exciting news…… Maggie has recently released a new book published by John Blake Publishing Ltd available in all good bookstores and on Amazon to buy or download.
