An update from today:

Bryan and Ann told me about Paris and her antics of yesterday morning and late evening last night tonight too. Apparently she was prancing about biting Larry and making him shift about, Bryan said she makes him laugh, watching her acting like a young horse despite her advanced years and old war wounds. Ann said yesterday morning, early, when she went out to check on Paris (she checks them all at first light) the old mare was doing 'yoga' trying to bite an itch on the inside of her back leg, twice she tried to reach it but because of old age and being a bit stiff she couldn't so she marched up to Ann and kept turning to look at her leg, Ann got the message and said she stood with the old mare rubbing her itchy bit for about 5 minutes till Paris sighed and walked away
You have to smile, this is a lady who up until a few years ago wouldn't have gone in the field with the horses but then Paris works her magic on everyone she meets along the way - well, mostly everyone. Amy sat with Paris while she ate her tea tonight and I brushed Larry.. such peace in our world at these precious times with our sanctuary resident gals and guys.

An update from today, with some pictures:

It rained! and blew and rained and mizzled and then blew a hooley and now it's mild and still and not so bad at all. Glad I didn't cave in and put rugs on but when we got to the yard there was no way that was going to happen, all out grazing as if it was dry and not one bit bothered any of them. Jim and Beau came thundering up from the bottom of the big field, swerving like loons through the bottom gateway and leaving Willow standing as his short little legs tried in vain to keep up..
Paris ate tea inside but wasn't cold nor bothered at all.
The two new little ponies, Acer and Ash, are on the agenda to visit tomorrow so really looking forward to that.
We've launched a bit of a competition this week to try and 'gee-up' funds a little so have a look below and give it a go if you fancy your chances at winning a nice new barrow.




She was tape weighted at 470 Kg a couple weeks ago:

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden loss of EMW Viuga (Paris) by Aswan aged 30. Suddenly but peacefully with love and kindness surrounding her. No more details tonight. BEAUTIFUL AMAZING MARE NEVER FORGOTTEN. Xxxx

So very sad, but at least she had a very good final year, with the sun on her back and surrounded by love, and has gone before the winter started. RIP Paris, you wonderful old lady.

I enjoyed so much all the updates on Paris and seeing her put on weight and thrive. She was a very special mare and I will miss her pictures and the hope she gave. I am pleased she left in the warmth of late summer/autumn and not the horrible cold of winter. EMW did a brilliant job. RIP dear lady.

EMW's final post on Paris:
Thank you to every single one who has helped to ease the pain of losing our lovely fabulous charismatic grand and famous old girl. There are some who come and get under our skin, this old lady was very much one from the day she arrived here with Michelle Kestin and Lianne Evans who had faith in her recovery and started her on that path so well. We have had 14 months of total joy and mended her mental and nutritional needs , gave her a friend in little Larry and gave her unconditional love. We sadly could not make her young again and yesterday she told us in no uncertain way she was ready to return to the warm southern wind from where she most definitely sprang from. To have had her here was a huge honour, to have loved her so much is causing huge pain. She had no pain, no fear and no stress at her time of passing, just love and kind words and gentle hands. Our most grateful thanks to Dominic and Sam and little Larry, who stood guard over her body and said his own little goodbye in his own way. Her body will leave us this morning, her spirit will remain inside us for ever. She was, for me, the very very best of the best. goodnight my sweetest girl xx

I'm so sad to read this,something I had been dreading to read every time there was a new update,but like others have said I'm happy she died peacefully at the end of summer after a year of the best care in the hands of people who so clearly loved her like every horse should be loved.RIP Paris.

I must admit that the description of little Larry saying his goodbye is the one that made me cry. I would like to add my thanks Rui for your constant updates about this dear old girl.
