Margaret quite rightly pointed out that I'd forgotten to blog July's calender photo! This month's photo featured 3 of our sponsor ponies who are lucky enough to graze on this beautiful conservation grazing site by the sea. The area is enclosed and we were quite careful to choose a site where there are no hazards such as cliffs! It's an amazing site known for it's amazing diversity in flora and fauna - there are even otters living there! The two mares, Misty and Star, are traumatised and have earnotches. Breeze (a gelding) was a foal from the original herd and isn't traumatised. He was born with a lameness which doesn't seem to bother him at all but makes him unsuitable as a riding pony. The ponies love living on this site! They get checked everyday by the Devon Wildlife Trust warden. We do an MOT check once a year - with the help of our friends Vanessa and Phillip, and our farrier, Frank, we round the ponies up and give them a health check and trim their feet.
