Hamish's Memorial

Hamish's Memorial

It was a sad week for everyone at Falkirk Community Trust and Newparks Farm at Muiravonside Country Park, as they announced the sad passing of their Clydesdale horse Hamish on 4 November.

Hamish, who was loved by many visitors, had become the face of Newparks Farm, having lived there for over 16 years after arriving as a foal.

Everyone at the farm had worked hard to nurse Hamish through the last few months of illness, but sadly he took a turn for the worse and the difficult decision was made to let him go on the morning of Thursday 4 November.

Chris Lacki, Stock Keeper at Newparks Farm said:

“I’ve worked on the farm for 20 years now and have known Hamish since he arrived as a foal, watching him grow into a true gentle giant. We used to walk around the farm together, but we had to put a stop to that as he grew bigger! He was always trying to steal my morning coffee and we made sure he got his own mug to drink before the vet arrived on the day he had to leave us. It’s been odd not seeing him waiting for me in the morning, but we had to do the kindest thing for Hamish. I’ve seen many animals come and go on the farm, but Hamish was a very special horse - he was my boy.”

Everyone at Muiravonside Country Park would like to raise funds to commemorate Hamish with a memorial on the farm grounds. If you would like to contribute to this memorial, please click here and select Muiravonside Country Park in the drop down.
