In Memory of Gypsy 1995 - 2017
Clydesdale Cross Mare
Gypsy was our big friendly giant. She stood at 15.1 hands she was a gorgeous Piebald Clydesdale cross mare. Born in 1995, she had been with our Group for quite a few years now and loved her work. She was the leader of our herd and a mother to all the other ponies. She was a very placid, friendly pony who loved people of all sizes, and loved to be petted. She has the most beautiful eyes which were 2 different colours.
Sadly our beloved Gypsy recently passed away after suffering from severe lameness and arthritis. She had reached the grand old age of 23 and in her 11 years at Shiresmill had performed an amazing job teaching countless riders and volunteers. She was very well loved by all and will be sorely missed. We feel incredibly grateful and blessed to have had her with us at Shiresmill.
