Autumn

Posted on May 13, 2020 at 3:45 AM

We've had some rain, winter coats are coming in thick and fast. You can feel winter coming. We're still feeding lots of hay, because although we look green it's mostly weeds and not-great grasses. The dams haven't filled, but there's water in the tanks and creeks.

Happy New Year! Hope everyone had a gorgeous Christmas with your family and friends. We certainly did. We had family out to the farm and despite the heat had a delicious outdoor lunch (thanks to some shade cloth and an industrial fan)


I missed the update for the start of December, but January's update couldn't be more different to November's photos. It's been hot, exceptionally hot, and we...

November 4 mare and foal group photos.

Posted on November 5, 2019 at 12:40 AM

I went for a walk yesterday afternoon to see how the mares and foals were getting on. They're in a large paddock with varying terrain - well as varying as you can have when you live on the floor of a valley. We finally had some rain after six months of barely any.


The feed in the paddock is sparse but holding, and the mares and foals are doing really well on it (in fact the mares could all...

Even more on my personal page (Angela Cook) Feel free to send me a friend request if you want to see more pony photos (or email me, email addy can be found on most of the pages/ contact page on this website) I also post ...

Vale little Rossi.

Posted on October 31, 2019 at 1:35 AM


I've struggled a bit (a lot) with dealing with the loss of Tam's little colt foal, Rossi. We had to have him put to sleep less than 24 hours after he was born when i discovered he had been born with a rare congenital defect - Atresia ani. This is not something i ha...

And we're done!

Never in my life would i plan to have five foals in a season, but hey ... happy accidents have produced beautiful results.


Rossi made his way into the world at 10.30am this morning (8th October) Tamaris is a 15yo maiden, and she's doing a grand job. She chose a cold day after a really warm spring spell (two days over 30degrees this weekend) but he's up and doing all the right things. Tam i...

Wish has arrived

Posted on September 27, 2019 at 8:45 PM

Our fourth foal has arrived. Another filly! Rosemarkie Merriijig was polite enough to foal mid-morning and i was lucky enough to be right there as Wish entered the world. She is exactly what i was looking for when i added a Paint to our partbred breeding program. My dream horse. Red dun with high whites. I've named her Earrach - Scottish gaelic for spring. Her paddock name is Wish.
