Sadly, we had to unexpectedly say our farewells to Magnus, our Highland pony. He very suddenly suffered a stroke late on Friday 14th June 2013, and after seeing that no improvement was in sight, we reached a decision with the vet to say our goodbyes'. Magnus was very trusting and people orientated, and although he had his stubborn moments, was a favourite amongst visitors for grooming! He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
