Tickle the pony makes them smile

Cyril Smith was delighted to be given the chance to make a fuss of five-year-old Tickle.

The Shetland pony wandered from lounge to lounge at Tixover House care home in Tixover so everyone had a chance to stoke the skewbald mare.

Care manager Debbie Crossfield “The residents loved it, and it gave them something to talk about.”

Tickle’s visit was part of Leicester-based Phoenix Children’s Foundation’s regular visits to homes for the elderly.
