But the highlight was two visits by Lauren Gaskin, who brought some very fitting friends along to help mark the beginning of the Year of the Horse.

Children at the nursery in Ashworth Green, Dewsbury, got the chance to watch pony Jakey Boy trotting around the grounds and help groom Shetland pony Tommy.
