Thank you everyone. She is a fab little horse. We don't do anything too exciting, just hacking and fun rides and stuff but she is brilliant, completely unflappable. Couldn't be happier with her.
I have considered having a foal from her for myself but it all depends on whether I can get a house with enough land for two large horses, I'm looking to buy somewhere at the moment. If I can only get something with a little bit of land it will be no to a foal.

Last autumn - 3.5yrs
