Please Help To Find Jeremy The Pony - Stolen/Missing

31/03/17 - We've been all over the site again today with a wonderful friend and her amazing forensic dogs - we thought that Jeremy was not deceased on site and the dogs have confirmed this for us, which is great.  My car gave up today with a mechanical problem and needs the AA out to fix it - so thanks to Margaret for driving all the way out to the site and waiting for hours for us to get back.  All the Facebook, news and media coverage means the word is spreading about Jeremy - which we are so grateful for...just hoping for a sighting.  We are also extremely grateful to everyone who has organised and is going to an arranged search for him tomorrow.  Keeping fingers crossed...   
29/03/17 - Just to confirm that Jeremy the pony is still missing - we didn't get back home until 11.30pm tonight - we've searched everywhere again and there is absolutely no sign of him - that's the 4th day now that people have been out searching the area.  Thank you so much to the wonderful people, including horse riders, who have been out helping to look for Jeremy - we really appreciate your help.  Today we've leaflet-ted local farms.  Please keep sharing about Jeremy on social media etc...fingers crossed someone somewhere must have seen him...

Please Help To Find Jeremy The Pony - Stolen/Missing

We really need to ask for everyone's help...Jeremy the pony has disappeared without trace from his new home and is missing, possibly stolen...we are absolutely devastated.  The whole area has been searched over and over again and there is absolutely no sign of him anywhere. 

Unbelievably he was stolen a few years ago and was found via social media so please Facebook and share online...Please can you share this post to help find him...


Jeremy is an Exmoor X, bay gelding, approximately 12hh.  He was last seen in the Welcombe/Morwenstow area on the Devon/Cornwall border.

Today was a big day and change for Jeremy the pony...his foster family have lovingly cared for him for over 3 years but a change in circumstances means it is no longer possible for him to remain with them at home...not what they had wanted or planned at all and he has been very much part of the family...

...But we could provide the next best thing...he could join our other nature reserve ponies who live closeby and his foster family can still visit him whenever they like.  This site is PONY PARADISE and it means our little herd there has grown from a family of 3 to 4.  Huge thank yous to Vanessa and Lisa for loading and transporting Jeremy for us!

We just love this site so much!

Reunited...the boys meeting again

Beautiful site "flyby" from the boys

East Moor Cows

Last weekend we again reported cows on East Moor to the authorities - 5 weeks after we originally reported them.  The cows have not been removed from the moor - nor have they been fed out on the moor by their owner and their condition has continued to deteriorate.  This is so frustrating - beef cows are worth a lot of money - and farmers on upland areas get good subsidies.  It was even stated in the Cornish news this week that the price of beef cows has gone up since Brexit!  It makes no economic sense to keep animals in this condition and is yet again not a good advert for Cornwall.  After so much media attention on East Moor last year too.  Is feeding your own animals really too much to ask?  It is covered in the legislation regarding farmed animals...

Feed, water and other substances

22.Animals must be fed a wholesome diet which is appropriate to their age and species and which is fed to them in sufficient quantity to maintain them in good health, to satisfy their nutritional needs and to promote a positive state of well-being.

24.   All animals must have access to feed at intervals appropriate to their physiological needs (and, in any case, at least once a day), except where a veterinary surgeon acting in the exercise of his profession otherwise directs.

A Day of Spring...

It was a lovely spring day today and very much needed!  We were lucky enough to have Catherine come to help...which meant after doing all the chores Faye and Arthur were finally able to get back to some ridden work - something they've missed doing - Arthur was fab...remembered everything and showed off his skills.  Munchie was quite envious but he will have to wait some time before he can do ridden work again, so he had a go at some obstacles with Catherine "in-hand".

Roy and Joyce came to visit.  Roy was our "broom mechanic" of the day bringing a new broom and revamping some of the others - bringing us memories of the famous comedy sketch of Trigger still having his original broom after many years dedicated service (17 new heads and 14 new handles!).

Munchie is getting so much better every day and is shedding lots and lots of coat - he's nearly looking normal now but still has a way to go.  He has the same hoof condition as Babe but from different causes - he is a pedal bone rotation rehab case but we have also needed to rehab his kidneys and digestive system too.  He is coming along really well bless him and is following in Babe's hoofprints so to speak.  His hooves have improved a lot but it will be a quite before he has grown new hoof capsules.  He's always got a willing companion to help him eat hay when he's in the yard!
The other boys really aren't losing their coats yet - Frodo is usually the first to start losing his so they obviously think it's going to be a late spring this year...

March Calendar Update and the "Young at Heart" Talk

Thank you to the "Young at Heart" group who invited Faye to visit this afternoon and talk about the work of People4ponies - it was lovely to meet everyone and we are very appreciative of their kind donations - thank you everyone!

We need to catch up with our P4P calendar stories as we have now reached March!  Puffin has cunningly featured himself on two consecutive months on the 2017 calendar.  We couldn't resist adding this photo which was captured by Margaret and Norman who fostered Puffin.  They went to check Puffin and Beth the donkey one morning and found that a deer had come out of the woods to join them.  They said it stayed with Puffin and Beth for a couple of days before disappearing again!  It's a fabulous photo and I love the expressions on their faces and the deer looking so majestic!  Thank you Margaret and Norman for letting us use the photo and for sharing it with everyone!
