I can't believe it! There were 3 donkeys killed in the horrific Hit&Run on the B3078. described as the worst New Forest animal accident in 20 years.
When will this carnage stop?
We wont put our Commoning animals out unless road speeds are reduced and more care taken!
If this happens there will be no reason to visit the New Forest as no animals and the ecology/environment will revert to scrub
Is that what you want?
Everyday I enjoy Tweeting on Twitter.

I've never "met" a follower who was nasty or spiteful until today. Someone followed me and I thought I'd followed them back which is something I always do out of politeness.
It seems when I pushed the button it didn't go through!
An honest mistake which when I was told of this I immediately apologised for and tried to rectify by pushing the button again.
Oh dear! I was met with capital letters (i.e shouting computer speak) and told I was acting with pomposity!
How sad that a simple error was met with such anger. Isn't life a bit too short to be so rude so quickly?
It made me realise how honest and sincere most people are on Twitter it seems.
We all politely FF each other and give each other encouragement and share thoughts and ideals and ideas whenever possible.
Although at first I was amazed by such vitriol it was really helpful to turn it around and recognise all the really great people who are honestly using this social media in a kind and positive way.
I'll carry on Tweeting to the good people out there in social media land. I hope my website never sounds pompous or anything other than me trying to share with others the beauty, joy and sometimes sadness my New Forest life involves on a daily basis.
Yet again New Forest animals have met with a road death. This time 2 donkeys have been hit and killed on the notoriously dangerous B3078 road from Fordingbridge to Cadnam.
Recently a car was logged speeding at 74m.p.h. on this road so really what chance have 2 little donkeys got with morons like this on the road?
I feel upset about this news on so many levels. Eventually as Commoners we will stop putting our animals out on the New Forest
Why is not more being done to kurb these deaths?
If you drive across the New Forest SLOW DOWN! or use another route without free roaming animals.
is that hard to understand?
Obviously yes to some drivers.
