Four legged friend visits Coxhill

Coxhill Manor care home in Woking had a very special four legged visitor this week. Caroline from Pony Pals brought in Mr Kelloggs, a British miniature horse for us all to see.

Very small in stature, Mr Kelloggs easily fitted in to the lift at Coxhill and happily went in to the residents rooms for a pat, chat and cuddle!

Caroline even brought a brush with her so we could have a go at grooming him and tidying his mane. The residents gave him a very warm welcome and were delighted to see him. For many he brought back memories of pony rides as children or life on a farm with livestock.

Apparently Mr Kelloggs got his name because he came from a farm in Wales, which is very close to the cereal factory. He was beautifully behaved, so calm and loved all the attention. He wore special rubber shoes on his feet to prevent him slipping on the hard floor, and, in case you were wondering, he wore a discreet little bag under his tail in case of mishaps, although luckily it wasn’t needed!

There was so much chatter and laughter that afternoon, we all felt a little hoarse after he left (sorry, couldn’t resist!) but we are looking forward to seeing his donkey friend, Mr Kipling, paying us a visit next month and kicking off Christmas for us at Coxhill Manor as ‘The Christmas Donkey’!

At Coxhill Manor care home in Woking we provide residential, nursing and specialist dementia care for up to 58 residents.
