I asked about loaning a highland pony from a lady, I went to see her and fell in love with her, she had always been a brood mare but at some point had been backed. We discussed how long I would loan her for and what I intended to use her for I was planning to breed a highland foal from her. I arranged to pick her up for the loan in a small pony box when I got there the pony's owner said she would like to gift her to me for a nominal amount
Nashend Balblair or Belle came to live with us, she is the sweetest mare with such a wonderful temprement. She is a 14.1 cream dun ( but greyed out with age) She has become a firm favourite at the farm with friends and family. My daughter and young sharer rebacked her and brought her back into gentle work and now spring is her she is busy teaching my Other Half to ride..... not bad for a 20 year old lady and this summer will go to visit a handsome show winning highland stallion :) and maybe have a foal for us :)
My other half getting to know Belle, riding her for the first time.
