1977 – October 2014
Sadly we lost one of our oldest residents, Mr.Pickwick.
He had a sudden attack of Colic and, despite our vets trying everything to help him through it, we had to make the sad decision to let him go to pony heaven.
Although Mr.P was 37 years old he always remained in good health apart from being diagnosed with Cushing’s disease which was easily managed with medication. The day before he became ill Mr.P was full of beans and feeling like quite a young man again after a young pony called Daisy was put In his field, so finding him with Colic was unexpected and losing him that same day was so sad as we truly thought we could get him through it.
We are happy knowing that Mr.P was so well loved and had the best of care, and hope he has joined his old ‘wife’ Jasmine over Rainbow bridge.
Rest in Peace Mr.Pickwick xx
