    For fun, if you could make a horsey wish...

    I wish we'd never sold my daughters pony. Still miss her 6 years later- sadly she had to be PTS 2 years ago, I always thought I'd buy her back sometime :(

    Yellow horse syndrome

    My daughters old pony was a Cremello. She always attracted attention, at one show a whole family were supporting her from the ring side- they loved the fact that pony and rider matched. Both blonde with blue eyes!

    There's Beavers at Beckwithshaw, they do DIY and part livery (5 and 2). They were good to us when my daughters pony was on box rest. Don't know prices though. Do Follifoot riding school do livery?

    Anyone else own a cremello?

    My daughters last pony was a Cremello. She was the kindest most bombproof pony we've owned.

Good luck with your new...

    Sold my daughters pony last June. Emma was meant to go to Uni. but changed her mind. We owned Ash since she was 3 nearly 4 and Emma did all the hard work with her. Ash gave her all her confidence back and I miss her so much. Weekends are boring now. Luckily her new owner keeps in touch via...
