A Pony Only Blog

Friday, November 10th 2017

The ponies, Lark and Taurus were photographed on Wednesday and were on the blog showing how well they could behave. Susanna posted a comment on the blog, and rather than put it on the blog itself I thought it would be nice to put it actually in the blog. She said of them - 'Glad the ponies behaved themselves - at least for a bit! They look as if they are fluffing up nicely.'

The Ponies

I mentioned, not long after they had arrived, that I had seen one of them kick the gorse before eating it.  Susanna again commented - 'Research into the ponies' diet on Exmoor found that in the winter, gorse made up 32% and grass stood at 31% of vegetation eaten.'

They have already made a difference to the invasive species.  This has been a huge job in the past for the volunteers and an endless task.  Hopefully no more!
