We are sorry to report that we lost a much loved member of our herd last night – Whibley.

Although Whibley had not been at High Hopes as long as many of our herd, he impressed and endeared himself to everyone with his amazing presence; both physical and in spirit … he was a huge horse with a huge heart!
Whibley presented in the Monday afternoon class with abdominal discomfort, initially thought to be colic. He received all the treatment that could be provided here at High Hopes from both Holly and our veterinarian, but it was clear that the issue needed further investigation and Holly therefore transported him to Tufts late last night.
The wonderful team at Tufts did all they could, but unfortunately to no avail and we lost Whibley early this morning.
We hope that friends of Whibley will leave memories and pictures of him at his stall, or on facebook. Anything you send we will add to this page (so be sure to let us know if we should not publish it).

We will miss you big guy! … may your pastures be always green
