With great sadness, we have had to say goodbye to Twizzle, our Welsh pony, who had been on loan to the farm since 2007. On 18 February 2019, Wendy made the heartbreaking decision to have Twizzle put to sleep. Twizzle was nearing 18 years old and had recently developed several health issues which were affecting her quality of life.
Twizzle was one of our original ponies used for RDA and more recently used for the Equine Assisted Learning Programme. In her time at Larkrise she provided therapy and riding for hundreds, and possibly thousands of children. She was confident and sassy.... like most mares..... but also had a gentle side, and will be sorely missed.
Thank you Twiz RIP x
