A Dream Horse With Petplan Equine

Who doesn’t dream of having their own horse or even their own unicorn?  Wow wouldn’t that be something.  My girls love horses and most other animals to come to think of it.  We’ve been to a few horse riding birthday parties and they loved it.  Given the choice, they’d have a horse in our garden.  Unfortunately for them my husband and I are not quite ready for that yet plus we could never fit one in the garden.  For now we’re settling for our bunnies but watch this space!!!!

A company called Petplan Equine emailed me recently and asked if I would like my little ones dream horse made into a soft toy.  How fun does that sound.  My youngest daughter heard this, grabbed some paper, felt tip pens and set to work excited at the prospect.

The Drawing

First she drew the outline of her horse head first.

Yes you guessed it, she was drawing a unicorn!

How’s this so far???

A touch of colour is always nice.

Then she sat back to admire her handy work.

Not bad for an 8 year old!

The unicorn was ready.  We scanned this and sent it over to Petplan Equine who then with a wave of their magic wand made my daughters dream horse a reality.

The Resulting Toy

Within a few weeks this fabulous unicorn had galloped it’s way across London into my little girls open arms.

It was perfect timing too for those who have seen some of my posts on social about her being ill and back and forth to hospital.

She couldn’t wait to see how the toy would look.

This soft toy was just like the one in her picture and she was over the moon when it arrived.

Isn’t it lovely.

They’ve done an amazing job keeping with the design we sent over.

When she saw the toy unicorn she was beaming from ear to ear.

The arrival of the unicorn could not have been timed any better and really did cheer up my daughter.

Of course if this was a real horse / unicorn, as responsible owners we would require an insurance such as Petplan Equine Horse Insurance to cover our fabulous new pet.  Having been around for longer than I have, this companies priority has been to keep the nation’s horses healthy and owner’s happy.  It’s heartbreaking to see any animal sick and knowing a company known for outstanding customer service will help customers get their beloved horses back to health after illness or injury can be reassuring.
