On Thursday afternoon Bess was found in the field unable to walk. When we called the vets they came and took x- rays and found she had both broken and dislocated her pastern. This is extremely serious but after consulting a specialist they decided there was some hope and that she would be able to be kept alive if she could have an operation to try and repair the damage. This would mean a lot of money and a long period of recovery but due to Bess being a favourite pony at the stables and also due to her patience and bright spirits while being treated we decided to give it a go. At homework club at the Church of the Ascension the vicar came and said prayers for Bess so it was an emotional time for all.
