1981 - 2013
Flags flew at half mast at Backworth yesterday, in respect of our 32-year-old teaser, Welsh pony ‘Tardee’.
Much loved, a character, and an integral part of Backworth, he performed his difficult and unenviable job with great efficiency!
Tardee showed wonderful health Sunday morning, enjoyed his breakfast as usual, but suffered a cardiac arrest just after being put out in the paddock.
On a magnificent autumn day in Eston, Tardee was gently laid to rest.
