The Exmoor Pony Centre, Ashwick, Dulverton TA22 9QE
We have taken in eight new foals so far at the Centre and have assisted with a further eight in their new homes. We have also been bringing on some of the ridden ponies, such as Jensen, and they will eventually become part of our trekking team. Meanwhile, Periwinkle, Robbie, Fudge and Fleeter have been on hard exercise through the winter in an effort to keep their weight down. Too many mince pies and carrots, perhaps?!
In November, we welcomed a new member of our team. Clare joined us as administrator and has been doing a great job keeping the office and shop in order and manning the phone.
We are also rather excited by the thought of shopping for the replacement truck being funded by the Elise Pilkington Trust. We hope to find one fairly soon and it will be a relief to be able to undertake the often long journeys delivering and collecting ponies in a reliable vehicle that is not always threatening to break down.
