When me and my mom came to Tia in August 2016 we were so fat and crippled with laminitis that we had to go straight onto a diet.

It’s hard having laminitis because all you want to do is eat, but it is the eating that causes the problems.

It’s also really hard when that is all you have done all your life.

Mom was 16 yrs old and i was 10yrs old so as you can imagine we had done a lot of eating, lovely green lush grass…

Our feet were also shocking as we had never seen a farrier. We got to know the farrier very well, he’s here every 6 weeks…but after four and a half years i’ve had enough.

I died today…

Before the vet came i had a massive bucket full of carrots and feed and i stood out in the sunshine stuffing my face with lovely grass…

I am not in pain anymore…
