Sadly we had to say “goodbye” to our adored mini, Patty. She suffered a stroke, and although we tried medical treatment, there just wasn’t enough improvement. She had become neurological and it was hard for her to get around like she once did. Patty had lost her sparkle, and just wasn’t herself. She was close to 30 years old, and she and her best friend, Lucy, have been with us for over 18 years.
They were originally rescued from an animal hoarder. Patty and Lucy had barely been handled, were neglected, needed major dental work, and were covered with lice when they arrived at the farm, and showed signs of abuse, as well. It took some time for her to come around, but Patty was spunky and bright, and enjoyed attention on her terms. She and Lucy were very bonded. The farm won’t be the same without our Patty. She left us very quickly with her friends close by.
Although Patty is deeply missed, thankfully, her buddy Lucy has the company of Tyler, who joined the little duo over the last few years.
