Memories of Toby

Toby was my best friend and he helped me through some rough times. I suffered with severe depression and ended up being admitted as an inpatient to a psychiatric ward but Toby was a life line for me, he was my rock. When he died I was so lost and alone, I still feel lost and alone but I am trying to move on. The summer of 2017 was one of the best he'd had, being the only man in amongst five mares! He did have a weird obsession with his lady poo but he was such a sweetheart....if you were crying he would nudge your feet and when you hugged him he'd pull you into his chest with your head. I took him to a cross country show and one fence was too big for him but when he refused he didn't let me fall! Toby did have a cheeky side but he was good at heart. Forever the grumpy old man who loved polos and apple (although only certain types of apples), he touched the hearts of many people. Everyone misses him but I know he will be waiting for me, somewhere....I will see my best friend again...
