Age: 35 year old
Breed: Welsh Section B
Biscuit is 35 yrs old, she came to us in June 2017 with 2 of her friends. It was a very sad day for a very well respected, loved, local horsey family, as they sadly found themselves parting with their 3 much loved equine family members, 2 of which had been part of the family for over 20/25 years. Both spent time, years apart at Barnston Riding Centre, under Brendas care.
Unfortunately life hadn’t been very kind and it became clear that all the love in the world and probably over 100 years collective experience, was no longer enough to meet the needs of ageing ponies.
The family had done everything in their power to care for the ponies and the fact that they are still with us and with full mouths of teeth, is testament to the care they have received over the years.
Biscuit is totally blind and arthritic, she is a pony that our Chair, Amy rode as a child, as did many others. She is a really sweet old lady and relies heavily on Dusty (Black) to be her eyes.
Now at a good weight, all have settled in well and made new friends
