Some how I ended up looking at some old photo's of my wonderful ponies (and donkey), that were once a big part of my life.... Most of the pictures go back at least 17 years ago and so unfortunately all my faithful friends have passed away...
So I thought that it would be a fitting tribute to them, to share these memories with you. I hope you like them.............


Miss V about 2 years old.... She just loved him so much and he loved her!

Our rescued Donkey Layateaze

Gimley and The Little One
The Little One came to me because he was going to end up in a nasty place, so I was quick to home him, until I could find him a loving owner that I knew would take great care of him. He suffered from foot problems so needed a understanding home....

Gimley and Ben

I brought Ben from the New Forest Sales, he wasn't a pony that had run on the forest, he was a part bred Arab bred by a lovely lady in Christchurch Dorset (he spent 5 years with me until I had to let him go when I started college and was unable to afford two ponies). A very sad day.
Gimley on the other hand was a pure New Forest and had HD branded on his back. I purchased him at the age of 6 years from a family in Chichester... He was my 14th Birthday Gift from my parents after many years of nagging them, like most little pony mad girls..... I had a job that paid for his keep and that was the deal..Dad said I will buy you a pony but you have to pay for his keep and that I did for nearly 20 years until he passed away.....
I still miss him today.. he was my best friend. He knew more secrets about me than anyone else...... He was my crutch when I needed a shoudler to cry on ( I have suffered with depression from my early teens and he always seemed to get me out from many a dark place. Animals have this amazing ability to bring calm and peace and thats why my life has always been surrounded by them......

Without sounding to cheesy..I would like to Thank everyone who has ever taken the time to look or has left a comment on my blog. Your words are very much appreciated and I find much comfort in them....Thank You....

Blessings to you all and enjoy the weekend
Love and light

Who's that Mystical Girl?

Miss V is studying photography and has been longing for me to make a cloak for her to wear on a photo shoot. So here is the result.... her friend who is also a photographer took the pictures. I know I'm bias but I love them. This is just a selection. Just couldn't help sharing them with you.....

Love and Light

A few things we have been up to!

You know those times when you just need a little comfort...... You would of thought I would be fed up of mince pies and cake, but no not me! It's my take on a fairy cake....

And of course couldn't resist a walk in the snow. Onyx loves the snow, as long as she has her two coats on that is!!!

The simplist things in life make me happy......... We encounted four foxes playing in the fields, what a magical sight, but just to far away for the camera.

A few pictures of the garden.......and our road at the front.

Miss V couldn't help herself check out the face on our car!

What a shinny red nose!

I think this year is going to be quite challenging as well as exciting... My hubby and I need different things out of our live's, so after many years of hanging on we have decided that for all off us it would be much easier to go our seperate ways. We are good friends and always will be, but it's now time to move on. I know it won't be easy, but I think it will make me a stronger person.
Anyway moving on to brighter things Miss V and I are going to Scotland next month. It's a place I have always dreamed of going to. So we decided life is for living and booked a week away. Edinburgh is our destination. The only draw back is we have to fly and I'm one of those nervous folk that doesn't it. But as Miss V has pointed out to me many a time, I've got to get over it if I want to live a spontaneous life and I have to agree. My Mum,s Dad was Scottish so I have a small connection,(my Dad's Father was from an Italian family, so perhaps that could be our next place we will visit), who know's.

I do hope that you all had a relaxing and happy time over the Christmas period and I wish you all Health and Happiness for 2010.

I can't stop listening to Sting's newest Album IF ON A WINTER'S NIGHT..... It takes me to a beautiful place...where I can dream.....

Love and Light
