Goodbye and thank you Bibi

This week have have had to say goodbye to our Therapy Pony Bibi,

Our Chair Michelle Sutton,

I am very sorry to be the bearer of sad news, but today we had to say goodbye to our lovely therapy pony Bibi.

She had been lame since Wednesday and seen by the vet on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. Her condition worsened over the weekend and today, sadly, she was put to sleep. At the end there really was no question about this decision and the Pony Welfare Management Team, including her sharer, Lindsey, were in complete agreement.

Bibi enjoyed a great summer here at West Fenton, with lots of hacks with Lindsey and fellow sharers and therapy ponies around the farm and down to Gullane beach.

Bibi was such a big personality at MRT and, at the grand old age of 26, there will be lots of her riders, our volunteers and our sharers who will miss her.
