Happy Birthday Willow

At our stunning South Manor retirement yard in Newton Abbot we like to make a big fuss of our older residents on their birthdays.

And this weekend it was the beautiful Willow’s turn as she turned 24 – almost as old as the Sanctuary itself, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary as a registered charity this year.

She came to the Sanctuary as a foal from a Dartmoor sale and has been one of our great success stories – enjoying life on loan as a child’s pony and companion.

Willow is now settling into her retirement and the caring staff at South Manor made her a cake with some of her favourite ingredients – fibre nuggets decorated with thistle flowers, dandelions and her beloved sticky weed.

And it’s fair to say…she enjoyed every single bite.
