                                       In Loving Tribute...Madeleine...

                                          Sweet Lady, Adaptable, Kind... 

Madeleine or Maddie was an elderly French lady of thirty years old, who we rescued from France with three other horses from France (Dune, Dodger and Illyanne). Maddie was the oldest and therefore lived with the older horses but chatted to her French friends over the fence. We always greeted her with 'Bonjour Madeleine'...

She had a strong character but also soft and kind. She loved being groomed and liked a hug but only on her terms. She was best friends with Springy, who was our eldest resident at an astonishing 35 years old, and the two went everywhere together.

(Our much loved Springy passed away peacefully in November 2012). On one occasion we took Springy out of the field as she had cut her foot on a bramble bush and Maddie jumped the fence to follow her!!!! Maddie was being a very brave girl as she adjusted to life without Springy and was taking comfort in the company of her friends Harvey, Charlie and Cottie.
