We lost our pony Flossie on January 12th after a short illness which didn’t respond to treatment. We are all still in shock as Flossie was the toughest pony ever and we tried everything to make her well again.
Flossie has been a favourite here with staff and visitors, especially the children on Pony Days who learned how to groom and pamper a pony properly by practising on Flossie. She would be as gentle as a lamb with children but if staff or volunteers entered her field without her permission, it was like entering a lions den and she would chase and kick until the poor human victim had leapt over a fence or given Flossie all of the hay they had in their wheelbarrow. Flossie had a fiery spirit which just made everyone love her even more.
Rest in peace Flossie, you will be missed xx
