Will Joe Grundy’s Pony Bartleby Carry Joe Grundy to the Graveyard in The Archers?

Having not listened to The Archers for the last 6 months during the Rob Titchener storyline, I’m now back listening to Jo Grundy looking forward to his birthday and wondering if his pony Bartleby will have a big storyline soon.

Bartleby Grundy

Sad thought I know, but with Joe approaching 95 and Bartleby being around since early 2000’s we have to start thinking about Bartleby carrying Jo Grundy’s coffin to the graveyard (or the other way round).

Are we leading up to Joe Grundy dying in his bed at Grange Farm or Bartleby dying in his stable

It’s looking more and more like that could be the case and an episode with Bartleby carrying Joe’s coffin to the graveyard sounds like a great way of getting old Archers listener’s who stopped listening during the Helen and Rob Titchener storyline back listening again.

If you stopped listening to The Archers will you start again when Bartleby or Joe Grundy dies?

Joe dying peacefully in his bed and Bartleby the Pony carrying his coffin to the graveyard Now that’s what The Archers is about.
