We had to have Princess put to sleep due to complications brought on by old age and illness. She spent her final years with her friend Tia, who would watch over her as she slept and boss her around when it was feed time.
After 6 years at HRA Dodger (with Maggie to his left) was succumbing to the ravages of old age, blindness and arthritis. While he found his way around his paddock okay, he was only getting worse and the decision to have him euthanised was made. He was very popular with our generous sponsors, and our condolensces, and thanks on his behalf, go out to them.
Due to her age-related decline we’ve said farewell to little Maggie.
Sadly, at the age of 32, we’ve had to farewell Tia. She came to HRA skinny, with a dull thin coat missing large patches of hair, exposing her skin. After two weeks at HRA she looked much better, and had soon put on weight and had a shiny thick coat. She was able to spend the last several years of her life being looked after as she should have been all along. Thank you to the HRA care-taker, Anne, who looked after her so well.
Markeen was put to sleep on 24th June 2016 due to colic.
