Dylan joined the family in 2004, two years after Nicki died. He belonged to our friends and they offered him to Caroline on permanent loan (although since then, he now belongs to her). At that time Caroline was just leaving to go back to university after the summer holidays but she had always liked him and she was beginning to feel withdrawl symptoms of not having a horse to care for. It was arranged that Dylan would stay at a friend's farm where I could keep an eye on him during term time.
He has been very happy at the farm but now that Caroline is about to graduate, he may have to leave depending on where she can get a job. His period of 'rest' is about to end and he will be back in work when she is settled somewhere!
