Knew I should have made it clear! The beautiful pony in the video, I would love to ave one in the garden, might work on it as it would be good for any children visiting. I could have a mini petting farm!

Good news and bad news. I think.

 

My friend has been to see the Shetlands. They aren't in a very good state and will need a lot a love and attention to get really fit and healthy. My friend is about to go into hospital for a spinal op (fusion) and won't be able to look after them enough. I don't live near Devon so wouldn't be able to help.

 

The ponies need rescuing and are free to a good home so the cost to me would have been a monthly of about £20 for food etc. However there could have be extra vet's costs that I couldn't afford. If anyone here can help then wander over to the PoniesDevon website 

This is the bad news, we (my friend and I) can't take any due to the effort and liability involved but they do need rescuing cry

The good news is that I'm not going to be (sorry pun intended) 'saddled' with a £20 per month payment.   whistle

 

And to be honest I hadn't actually thought about large scale smoking devil

Looked at the site but am struggling to find information about bringing a pony here. The site says they are passported. I will have to talk to OH about it before going any further

It can be done, but wouldn't be cheap shipping one over. Talk to Alison who runs the site.

Found out that apparently it is easier to get animals if you fetch them yourself with a horse trailer. I thought it might have been easier to have a shipping agent in a part load but apparently not roll_eyes

Sorry to read your news Simon, never easybig_hug

oH has already said the cost is too high, he always says that when I suggest another animal? Also sorry to hear of the loss of a lovely animal.
