Tilly

Colour/Breed: Piebald Cob Mare

Height: 16hh

Date of Birth: 1996

Died: January 2013

Tilly arrived on the 20th of March 2007 from Wales. She was very willing and very good with the special needs section and novice riders. However, she did not always enjoy being around other horses, and sometimes acted a bit claustrophobic when she was around a lot of horses. She was rescued from her original owners, which may explain her discomfort with other horses and the scar on her nose. Despite this, she was a very sweet horse and good all around.

Following 18 months of lameness during which time she was put on a diet, given remedial shoes and even underwent surgery on her front feet, but she continued to experience great discomfort. The sad conclusion was that she would be put to sleep. She died on 8 January 2013.

RIP Tilly.
