22nd October, 2011 Spots before their eyes

I am helping with a small experiment on the Forest which means that this morning I have stuck reflective stickers all over my New Forest ponies. This was the brainwave of Steve Kitcher, Editor of NFED, who first noticed that ponies that had been bought through the sales and turned out with their lot numbers still attached were highly visible in the dark. He has arranged for a supply of white ones that people can attach to their ponies to see how long they last and whether they do make the ponies more obvious in the dark.
