It is with such great sadness that I had Jimmy (Broughton Jim) put to sleep aged 31 years, due to a tumour on his tail increasing in size - even though he was still full of beans and wanting the next mare. Brian bought him as a young Welsh Section 'D' colt almost 2 years old and we spent time on him so that when he was broken and showing he had manners and was able to go on and do almost anything, which he did except for dressage. He fathered so many quality animals = some of which have gone on to event, hunt and showjump. Karen jumped him BSJA and also hunted him which he really enjoyed. He went on later to be shown in M & M classes; working hunterpony; and latterly in Veteran classes. I can honestly say in all the time we had him apart from his yearly vaccination - he was never sick or sorry.
He has been part of the family for over 29 years and will be forever remembered as old Jimmy who gave us everything he had.
