On 15 October 2020 we announced to the public the sad news that we’d said goodbye to Twiggy. This lovable black Shetland aged 20, had been living in the care of Bransby Horses since 2002, when she was rescued by the charity after being found injured and foaling at the side of a road.
As Twiggy has grown older her health has deteriorated and, at the end of last year, it became apparent that she was suffering from a number of age-related dental issues, with several large gaps, known as diastemata, forming between her teeth and trapping decaying food.
Following this, and in the knowledge that Twiggy would struggle to cope this winter due to her dental disease making it difficult to chew hay, the charity made the very difficult decision to euthanase her.
Twiggy will greatly be missed by everyone.
