Our Exmoor Foal! (no idea why we want TWO Exmoors - one is bad enough! LOL :-)
Farleywater Siren, is a filly about six months old and has come straight off Exmoor - we've had her two weeks now, and she is an absolute sweetheart.
(No we didn't take her from the moors! The owners - Exmoor Farmers - round up all the wild ponies once a year to check them over, and find homes for the colts and a few fillies, this is because the Moor cannot sustain too many ponies.)
The Exmoor Pony is classed as a rare breed and is in danger of extinction - hence some of us are keen to preserve the breed. There are several strictly monitored herds on Exmoor. Both our ponies are from the Farleywater Herd - which isn't far from Doone Valley.
and so he doesn't feel left out - Mr Mischief, our 12 year old Exmoor.
