This year, in the spring, I made the decision to purchase a new hill pony. This is part of my commitment to keeping the breed going and doing what they are meant to do. I have put her to an estate to gain valuable experience and although only six years old she is turning out to be a very capable deer pony and now successfully completed her first season on the stags and now operating with the hind cull. It is a pleasure to see the ponies working again and I look forward to potentially taking a foal off her in the future. The other reason I have started with the ponies again is our commitment to being able to cull with as low an environmental impact as possible.
