The passing of Tardee

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.
