On Wednesday 22nd July our residents and staff put on their posh frocks and enjoyed the day celebrating Royal Ascot. The biggest surprise for the residents was when our Finance and Estates Manager, Tasha, brought her 15-year-old, 17 hand high horse named Pie along to the event. Pie was enjoying all the attention as the residents fed him carrots and talked to him.
Tasha commented saying 'it's not often you can say I took my horse to work with me today!' and I think it's fair to say it's also not often that residents in a nursing and care home can say 'we had a horse come to visit us today and I fed him some carrots!'
The residents also enjoyed eating strawberries, scones, cakes and cream with a glass or two of bucks fizz - it really was such a lovely afternoon for everyone.
