A Long Overdue Update of New Forest Life

October 2017

I can't believe it's been so long since I last wrote a blog page - so here's a catch up of the summer as we go into autumn.

We've had our usual calamities which on the whole have turned out OK. Going out at least once or twice a day to check on our boy helps to pick up any other issues that might need help.

Just dog walking I discovered a friends pony who had a roofing nail embedded in her hoof - lucky outcome but a £300+ vets bill.

A friends lovely filly had a badly torn shoulder - we think she may have been struck by a truck. The vet did a beautiful job in both internal and external stitching and after a couple of weeks in she was let out again. The healing wound was checked daily and healed nicely - another large vet bill for the owner though!

Yesterday it was Sunny's turn to be in danger. Gorse cutting had occurred and the large bonfire had been fenced off as the smouldering embers were left to die down. The fencing was pretty inadequate as orange, plastic open gauge plastic hanging from metal ground rods isn't going to stop any New Forest animal breaking through.

I hadn't seen Sunny but thought I'd just pass by the bonfire and make sure no pony had been daft enough to get into the ashes. Who was standing inside the fence? Yep! - Sunny!

What a twit! he was luckily on the outside rim of the ashes eating anything he could find. Of course there were thousands of acres of forest outside this area but no, he had to get inside the fence! As he saw me he picked up a large bit of cut gorse - much bigger than he would have normally picked for himself off a gorse bush - rammed it in his mouth and then understandably had trouble chewing it!!! A total plonker!

I coerced him over the fallen plastic fence and then had to spend the next half hour mending a pretty daft fence so that no other pony or cow got in. Although the ashes looked cold and despite the rain etc when I touched them they were still very warm. As there were no hoof prints in the hot bits I hoped he'd not trodden over them on his daft adventure.

He ambled off after giving me a lick without care in the world - the life of a New Forest pony eh?
