Friday the 18th November was a very sad day here at Bannockburn.
Oily (Sheffield) our Stallion was sadly put to sleep due to an internal infection which he could not fight due to his old age. Oily was a special horse to us, he changed from being a wild terrifed/untouchable horse we bought just over 4 years ago to a very gentle, kind, loving horse that has produced two beautiful horses for us - Pippa (just turned 4 years old) & Ruby (just turned 2 years old).
Oily will be deeply missed, but not forgotten.
He now lays beside his lady love Gemma (mother to his babies) - who we lost in June this year to a freak paddock accident.
