1980 – October 2012
It was with sad regret that we had to let Molly go as she was struggling to cope with her arthritis and blindness. Molly was a real character and even when she became ill she never lost her spirit, she was close friends with Bronte who became her eyes even though Bronte can be a bully, she took Molly under her wing and looked out for her.
When Molly arrived at Hope Pastures she had been passed from home to home and was emaciated and full of worms. It took a careful feeding regime and lots of TLC to help Molly to gain weight and she has had two lovely well earned summers of retirement with us.
As we investigated Molly’s history it was found that she had been loaned out as a companion and her owner still believed her to be safe and well when in fact she had been sold several times, ending up with horse dealers and inexperienced owners. She is very lucky that she was noticed for sale in very poor condition and we were alerted to her plight.
Everyone at Hope Pastures was very fond of Molly and she will be especially missed being seen cantering down the hill with her tongue hanging out and banging on her stable door constantly to ask for more food! 1980-2012 RIP xx
