Tiny Twiggy


This is Caroline.
Caroline has been one of my best friends since we were 11 at school when we bonded over wearing bras. She is recently engaged. And she will kill me for using that picture!
It's not her general attire, she is normally found like this...

Yes, that is a goat on her back. 
Shes got a whole menageie of tiny animals that she breeds, sells and does therapy with. I wanted to share with you the story of the latest edition to her team
Tiny Twiggy 

Cute huh! 
Back in May Caroline got a call from the equine hospital to say the RSPCA had found a miniature foal. She was found in a storm drain and no one quite knows where she came from, but she was lucky to be discovered. Twiggy was just a few days old when Caroline took her on, she moved in to her back garden and Caroline slept on the sofa for months to keep up her feeding. They went everywhere together, like another dog and she looked on Caroline as her mother sticking close by her side at all times. 
Because they had to stay so close Twiggy was quickly initiated in to the Pony Pals team. The team of little horses travel around to care homes seeing the elderly. The smell of horses often brings back memories for them and being able to plait their manes reminds them of getting their children ready for school. Shes now used to walking on different surfaces, avoiding equipment, going in the lift- they're even house trained! 
She's a quick learner and is doing a brilliant job! Twiggy started out life abandoned, thrown away and forgotten but now her fluffy little face brings happiness and the comforting feeling of nostalgia to so many everyday.
Despite the fact she's obviously bonkers, I'm pretty proud of Caroline for rearing Twigs amongst her daily life, work and other animals, and I think she's doing a wonderful job making others happy.
