26th January, 2009 Due Diligence

On Saturday I went to work with Carol and her Exmoors. I haven't seen them for a year and I was astounded at the difference in her ponies. Bobby and Gingernut were both very nervous when they arrived with Carol and she did wonder whether she would ever get anywhere with them. Even leading was an issue - Bobby would just leave if he felt worried about anything. Through perseverence, commitment and just working with what she had each day, Carol has brought them such a long way. Exmoors seem to regress very quickly and the progress that these ponies have made highlights the value of almost daily work. This is her latest addition - Weedy. Weedy???!
