Welsh Ponies

In March 2011 we were alerted to the plight of 30 welsh ponies culled by their breeders and on their way to slaughter. Fortunately we were able to do a deal with the doggers and purchase the entire truckload.

What a magic feeling it was to see 30 of the most wonderful ponies walking down the loading ramp to safety in our care. The majority of these babies were not even yearlings! Most likely weaned straight to slaughter.

With the use of the internet and social media we spread the word and had hundreds of calls from prospective new owners wishing to help take a pony or two. As they were all unhandled, we were very particular about who they would go to.

It is now September and we have placed all but 4 of the ponies. What a wonderful success it has been.
