Last week we had to make the incredibly difficult decision to say goodbye to our beautiful old girl (34 years old!), Tori.
She was found in the field unable to stand, and after an examination from the vet, we discovered that she was suffering from neurological complications. Although Tori still wanted to get up, the message just wasn’t being passed from her brain to her legs.
Tarot was so sad to leave her, but Shandy has been a great comfort to him and is really helping him get through this hard time. They have been together for many years, and General Manager, Lianne has never seen a friendship between horses like it – they were joint at the hip.
RIP beautiful girl – you will be sadly missed by all.
