I live with some real animals!
Sporting his shaggy winter coat and free flowing fringe, Snowy the pony is cautious and timid. Even after years of hand feeding him, it’s very rare that I can pat him, but he will come running up for a handful of sweet chaff, carrots or apples.
Rocking his natural bangs, big bad boy Trojan rules the paddocks. He’s very friendly and loves a big pat or a scratch behind the ears. And food! I have to put two piles of hay out otherwise he pushes poor old Snowy out of the way
Don’t let her closed eyes fool you. One noise out of place and Storm will be on full alert, barking out warnings until any perceived threat has gone – and then bark some more just in case! She loves us but hates anyone else, even regular visitors. A known menace who unfortunately can’t be trusted, bu does make for a great guard dog who’s teeth have been tested.
