Full Circle

 

We started this blog with reports of a wedding and unbelievably Chris and Michelle’s  first anniversary has passed and it’s time to finish our on-line diary.

We have had an unexpectedly large following , just under 15,000 hits in 12 months, thank you all for sharing in the many joys and the occasional heartache of one place on Exmoor. 

Lots of new friends have been made and a few old ones lost as nature inevitably takes it’s course.

Sparhanger goes from strength to strength, what better place to keep a horse at livery or from which to ride out in a small escorted group. Here for the last time are the contact numbers.

Beautiful Exmoor

 

The diversity of the Exmoor terrain and it’s varied wildlife makes for ideal riding and walking.  From year round sightings of red deer and Exmoor ponies, to the mewing buzzards in Spring, from the occasional sightings of red kite in Winter and the evocative call of the breeding curlews over the high moors in Summer there is so much to appreciate  in this lovely upland area of Britain.  If you have never visited us, it’s time to make the trip.

Bob’s in trouble.

Someone must have moved that wall!

 

Oh dear, Bob’s in trouble.
Di takes a couple of days off and leaves Bob in charge, unfortunately someone’s  moved a wall overnight, which Bob hit with Di’s truck.

ps.  It’s all Steve’s fault as Bob was avoiding the wall that Steve built.

The New Girl

 

The most recent arrival

 

This is the new girl on the block. Her name is Blue Belle (sorry if the name is not correctly spelled)  and Helen has just bought her.  Helen is hoping to be able to get in some pleasurable rides on her.
When Helen tried Belle out she took her on the beach, where they went into the sea and went swimming!!

Zoe checks the Exmoors

 

Checking over the Exmoor Ponies

 

Zoe goes for a walk, or should we say push, with Chelle’s Dad on the moors.  This is great amusement for the Exmoor ponies who all follow behind. These Exmoors are all geldings and it’s an enjoyable sight on the moors, seeing them living in their natural habitat.  They are fairly tame so we can get pretty close to them.
