New Home For Beau & Barney..

Both my beautiful boys, Barney & Beau, will be going to a new forever home shortly with the lovely Tomos Family in Pembrokeshire. We are keeping the "Boys" here, until the fencing is done at their new home.
The Tomos's came to visit yesterday and the Children spent some time with the Ponies. Their Daughter chose Barney and their Son chose Beau. I'm totally over the moon that the "Boys", will be going together.
I Love all our Ponies, but I've had a real soft spot for Barney, as he is exceptionally Tiny and has the sweetest temperament. He certainly is a little Pony with the cute factor. When he's got his Winter Wooley's on, he always reminds me of A.L.F. Can you see the resemblance?????...

Can Anyone Help - Who Is Biscuit ?

Today, I was contacted by a lovely Lady named Laura.
She is trying to trace any information on her Rescued Miniature Shetland Pony, who is called Biscuit.
Biscuits story is that he was found around 2006/07 . Laura was told, by the rescue centre, that he had been thrown out of a transit van, over a 5 bar gate into a farmers field and dumped. He was taken to a small family owned rescue centre in Kent (which closed down last year). But he wasn't Micro-chipped, which he is now. Laura got Biscuit from the rescue centre 3 years ago in July 2008 and has spent lots of time, building his trust in people again. The first three pictures are from Laura's & Biscuits first show last weekend. As you can see he is a much loved Pony now.
Biscuit is around 31-33 inches tall and was an entire Stallion when dumped. The rescue centre had him gelded, and their Vet estimated his date of birth as approximately 1998.
Laura would really like to know his history and also be able to register him with the Shetland Pony Stud Book Society.
Laura is sure he was once owned by some nice people and was maybe stolen to cover mares and then dumped. She contacted me, as on reading my blog, she saw, that we came from Kent and wanted to know if we'd lost or had a Pony Stolen.
So does anyone recognise him? or have any information that could help Laura, track Biscuits breeding?
Any help would be gratefully received.

Pictures & News..

Been pretty busy here over the last week.
Kai has gone off to a new home in Pembrokeshire, with the Thomas Family. They came to view him and ended up taking him home with them that evening. We wish them every success with him. They are going to stay in touch and I'm looking forward to seeing the Foals from their Mares next year.
Harry helped me get the Mares and Foals into the yard and give the Foals their Wormer, they were definitely not impressed, but it has to be done.
We've also opened up the Fields behind the House, so that the Girls are all mixing together again with the Mum's and Foals.
Today our Farrier Tomos came and did some of the Ponies. He only does a few at a time, as it's hard work on his back, bending nearly in half to do their Hooves.
Been taking lots of pictures of the Ponies. Here are a few of the best ones. If you click on them they will pop up bigger. As you can see the Foals are all doing really well and all play together now. It's lovely to watch them all, charging around the fields.
