A very short life for one New Forest foal

A little brown filly foal sadly lost her life on a New Forest road on 26th June 2015.
What a sad end to a short little life?
You can find the worst roads on the New Forest on my animal accidents page and download a handy map published by the National Park Authority.
The B3055(West) was the road this little foal was killed on but when you see the map you'll realise just how many roads are fatal to our New Forest animals from speeding and ignorant drivers.
Animals will just step out (or in the case of a new foal probably leap out!) onto the road from the verge.
Care and awareness is needed whenever you drive on or across the New Forest please.

New Forest Horse Riding - who do I actually recommend?

My horse riding recommendations are based on my visit to a specific riding stable and whether, based on what I have seen on that visit, I feel happy to recommend it to you
I visited Burley Riding Stables and met Sharon who runs this yard.
Everything I saw was good with well looked after horses and ponies and happy riders
I built my page and was happy to recommend the stables.
When Burley Manor got their own website (a good idea I thought for ease of bookings etc) I was astounded to see my copywritten photos used as well as word for word comments!
I spoke to the web designer who tried to blame the owner for this intellectual property breach. I knew this wasn't true and after much discussion we agreed that he would return the watermark to my pictures (which he'd removed) and also he would add a link to my website too.
Imagine my surprise when I looked at Brockenhurst Riding Stables website and found again my photos, sometimes with and sometimes without my copyright watermark.
He had also used my comments from Burley Manor in his "About" section to recommend Brockenhurst Riding Stables. Shoddy work and illegal too.
There is more shoddy and sloppy copying and broken links on their site too but I wont list it as he would probably just change it and I would have again done the work for him!
I've visited Brockenhurst Riding Stables to try to get to the bottom of this matter but want to make it clear that I do not recommend these stables as until yesterday I had never visited them.
I don't blame the owner of the stables as I genuinely believe she has no idea how to manipulate her way around a website let alone commit an infringement of intellectual property in this way.
I do blame the web designer and I'll be taking the matter further through the correct channels.
I wondered why I spend so much time sharing my New Forest recommendations with all the wonderful visitors each year - it must be so someone can take money to build a website based on my hard work!!!
