Folly died on March 1st 2007. She had been well up until that morning, when her heart rate and temperature shot up dramaticaly. The vet was called at once but she did not respond to treatment. By evening she was so weak we got the vet back to help her die peacefully. |
Folly was a Shetland pony, thirty inches high and born in 1973. She narrowly escaped as a three year old when she and her foal were bought at a horse market by a friend, who outbid the meat men. She later went to Redwing Riding School and many people will remember her as the first pony they rode. She had visits and carrots from a number of people, in their twenties and thirties, who had ridden her as small children.
