This piece is by Peggy Buckman, Rupert's owner who wanted everyone to know her lovely old horse had passed on.
RUPERT our very special mate who gave us so much pleasure and love over the years. He was a very friendly horse who liked people fussing him and in return gave them a sloppy kiss. He was well pampered and attended to and stayed with us until he died at the grand old age of 30 years.
I was particularly fond of Rupert because although he was short in stature he was not short on character! When I first met Rupert he was extremely naughty to deal with, but once his painful eye was cured by an operation at the Animal Health Trust, he was a poppet.
This piece is part of our next newsletter, due soon......
