Rescuing and re-homing equines since 1974

Jasmine

We lost Jasmine very suddenly to colic recently which was a great shock for all of us as it was so unexpected.

We tried in vain to save her but in the end it was decided her prospects were very poor and she was in severe pain so we had to make the terrible decision to say goodbye to her, this was not easy and we were very upset at how distressed Mr Pickwick was and it was a very sad day for everyone involved.

Jasmine was such a sweet gentle and pretty little pony who was always well behaved and never harmed anyone, although she had a terrible history and was really nervous, she always put so much trust in anyone who handled her, even crowds of children on pony days who she let groom and pet her for hours.

We had problems with laminitis with her over the years and it took a lot of careful management, care and attention to get her through it, we are pleased to say that she had been fine for a long time and had been running round her paddock very happily.

Mr .Pickwick was understandably very upset at Jasmines death and for a few days seemed to be looking for her, although now he has settled in a field with Muffin and Mr .Jingles and seems very happy.

We will always be glad for the time we had with her as she made everyone very privileged that she trusted after all she had been through with humans, she never showed any aggression or grumpiness and was a pleasure to care for.

We like to think that she is now in a better place with her old friend Beauty, a place where nobody can ever hurt her , torment her or break her spirit like the people who did these things years ago.

Rest in peace Jasmine you will always be missed.
