Brandy is a chestnut thoroughbred gelding belonging to Captain John Vickery
A dark chestnut gelding about 14 hands high and about six years old.
Not as highly-strung as some thoroughbreds, Brandy is relatively easy-going, disinclined to bite or kick, although he is a little wary of strangers but willing to accept apples or carrots if strangers offer them. Brandy has belonged to Vickery since he was a foal, and is 'bomb-proof' - trained not to panic at explosions and other battlefield noises, sights or smells. He has also been trained to kick in defence in battle.
