    Fell Ponies, show me yours!

    Last week my new 2 year old Fell calmly strolled into our lives and I'm totally in love with him, he's just such a happy, cheery, clever pony who wants to be with you and involved in everything. So far we've been for a few walks round the fields and his leading is perfect, even when he saw the...

I'm so excited I'm like a child waiting for Christmas but now it's actually happening, a bit nervous too incase I've made a stupid decision or something goes wrong between now and him arriving...

    Help Me decide! Do I want a Cob or a Native

    Since my herd has gone from 3 down to 1 in the last year I'm looking to get a new pony/horse. I had narrowed my criteria down to a Fell or Highland. But then 2 weeks ago the horse I borrowed to keep my last one company arrived. He is a big retired coloured cob who is built like a tank, after...

I've been idly musing today, since I lost my little shetland a couple of weeks ago I've borrowed the most lovely horse to keep my last remaining pony company.

    Buying a New Horse, Suggestions Help Please!

    Up until about a year ago, I had 3 ponies that I've had for the last 18 - 19 years. Just before the first lockdown happened I had my old pony put down at the age of 27, after that I stupidly thought I'd get a break from seeing my vet so often! Obviously, that thought cursed me because then my...

    Shetland size Fly Rugs

    While I'm sitting here looking out of the window at gale-force winds and torrential rain, I'm optimistically planning for summer. I have a rather old shetland who has developed a tumour on her lady parts (don't know if using the correct word would get me told off). It's being treated by the vet...

    Pony and her new mini person

    After 4 years of not having her own small person today she met someone who just scrapes in as being small enough to ride her. Given that my preparation for this was to last night root out her saddle, put it on and take her for a walk in pouring rain and then lean on her for a while to remind...
