Bobby and Cobby:

Bobby and Cobby in the top yard

BOBBY AND COBBY were relinquished 13th August 2005, when their owner was admitted to St. John's Hospital, Sligo on a permanent basis.

Both ponies were in good condition and had nice natures. They both had worm bellies, which were treated on arrival. Their hooves needed trimming too but they were not abused.

Bobby (black) was very aged and Cobby (black with some white) was younger. Bobby was the more dominant of the two.

They were placed in a foster home but were returned in June 2006. Bobby was unable to eat and was losing weight rapidly.

Subsequently he had five teeth removed by equine dentist Lisa Molloy with vet Evi Stabler attending and improved again rapidly.

Cobby

 

They were both lice infested and Cobby was too fat and potentially laminitic.

 

 

 

April 2012, Bobby suddenly stopped eating and two vets concluded he had a growth in his throat. He had always coughed, especially after eating, but the growth was now stopping his food intake and gradually blocking his airways. We all felt it was time to let him go. Cobby knew something was happening and presented himself at the gate to be let in. He went over, sniffed at Bobby, wandered round the shed for a few minutes and asked to go out again. Seems he also knew it was his time.

A chatty little character who will be much missed in the yard.
