Say hello….

05Sep08

…..to our new family member.

This is Aran Sweet Mover.  A long 4 months since Minder moved on we finally have a replacement!  Lily first tried this pony back in July but we knew he wouldn’t be available until now.   We’ve had to wait 10 days for results of veterinary checks and x-rays but the results today were all good, and we’ll be picking him up on Monday.  A huge relief because I was absolutely dreading the prospect of starting the search all over again.  I still can’t quite believe we’ve bought another grey pony though.  I swore we wouldn’t do it again as it is such hard work getting them snow white on show day, but it was just love at first sight for Lily.

Oh and we loved the hint of ‘knittiness’ in his name!
