I know I was supposed to post the 'beauty salon' feature this week but I made a promise to a young lady I met at the weekend so Grace, this blog is for you.
It has been a very exciting week at the farm as once again we have a new arrival. I am very pleased to introduce our little pony, Jasper. As much as we loved Cassidy, our naughty little Welsh Mountain who was the inspiration for our next book - Tummy Trouble at Roberts Farm - he did have a terrible habit of bolting off with a small child in tow! This little chap seems perfect in every way. He is gentle, loves to be fussed over and most importantly, can be stopped by all the children when they are riding him...well so far anyway!
Jasper is just under 12 hands and is a Section A Welsh Mountain pony. Even though we only picked him up last Saturday afternoon it feels like he has been with us for ages! He has really settled in and thankfully the other horses accepted him straight away, especially big Jo! They are a bit like little and large when they stand together. Now he just needs to meet the pigs...!
I hope you all have a good week and make sure you keep watching to see how Jasper is getting on.
