1991 – November 2014
November 13th was a very sad day at Hope Pastures as we had to say goodbye to old Timmy, our mascot pony. In recent months his Arthritis had become gradually worse and despite trying very many treatments and pain relief options, poor Timmy was constantly in discomfort and unable to lead a happy pony life. Timmy was a little legend, visiting nursing homes as a therapy pony and attending fundraising events and outings. He had a better social life than many of us here! Timmy was so gentle with children and even the smallest little hands were able to groom and cuddle Timmy in safety. There will never quite be another pony like him and he will be greatly missed.
Rest in peace Tiny Tim xxx
