Residents at Hardwick Dene residential home were treated to a visit from a four legged friend.
A Shetland pony was bought into the home in Brampton to meet all the residents and give them a chance to stroke the small animal.
Activities coordinator Naomi Taylor: “They all loved it coming in; it was a really good afternoon.
“It was really nice and happy the residents, we are hopping to do it again.”
The pony bought back memories for a lot of the residents as many had either owned ponies or had worked with them when they were younger.
