George was a very handsome Shire horse who was only with us for a couple of months , but who left a lasting impression on everyone due to his kind and gentle nature.
George had been found emaciated and with badly infected legs , which took a lot of cleaning and antibiotics to treat . He also had a badly rotated pelvis and so due to his size, he struggled to control his back legs properly. Eventually he was struggling too much and we had to say goodbye to him to prevent any further suffering.
George was a pleasure to have around and everyone grew to love him, in his last weeks he was spoilt with lots of treats , feed and carrots which is the least we could give him . He always greeted us with his head up and a little noise to ask for carrots please.
We will miss George and the place already seems a little bit empty without him , we hope he will rest in peace and no longer be in pain.
