 Vale: October 2000 to October 2008

Only eight years of age.

It is with heartfelt saddness that we inform the horse community of our sad loss of princess Sophie.

Sophie had a serious illness that caused her extreme pain. Sophie laid down and just went to sleep.

We thank our vets for all there care and treatment in trying to save Sophie.

Your memory will never be forgotten and your pictures from Barastoc will hang pride of place in our new home.

We still remember the morning you were born and have it on video.

We miss your little nickers and your cuddles.

Rest in peace little girl, you are pain free now.
