We are sad to bring the news that Lady has lost her fight with illness and has been put to rest.
She had not been right for some time and the vets did a lot of investigating to look into the reasons why, looking at her teeth, trying different feeds and having blood tests to check for internal problems, nothing could be found but the vets suspected a neurological problem as well as her arthritis giving her lost of trouble.The recent bad weather was a real struggle for Lady and she needed to be kept warm with nice thick coats and plenty of good food. Right up until her final day with us she still enjoyed a carrot and a ginger biscuit.
The day before we lost Lady some people visited her from her past who came to say goodbye, they told us that Lady was almost 30 years old which is older than we originally thought. Lady was a truly gentle pony and although she was a troubled soul she soon settled with us and she was well loved and cared for.
She will be missed very much,but will be with her old friend Zak now at peace together at last.
