What a lovely present!  And lucky pony for getting such a good home, too.  I take it you have had the pony "hidden" at your place, until the big day .....although, it would not be that difficult to hide a pony that size

No Roxy, it wouldn't - reckon I could have hid it in my handbag  :roflanim:
My friend lives just down the track though (not even 5 minutes away) so Polly stayed there til Xmas morning and then Bruce went down to get her, my friend Gail and her neice Pauline couldn't wait to see the kids faces either so they came up too, it was lovely  :excited:

Lucky Polly Pocket  :D

We shall love to hear and see the stories as she settles in and the kids learn about looking after equines.  Like Mammyshaz, you won't be able to bore me with horsey stories  :)

Karen, she is so lovely and you will never bore me with pony pics and stories either ;D
The bond that children form with their pony is one that is amazing to watch and yes wee ponies (well mine do and sounds like Polly is the same) seem to 'just' know that they are around children and behave differently around them.
Now I do have to say that when I first saw the photo - in my defence it was very small on the screen, BUT I thought that you had got a saddleback :innocent: :innocent: Then enlarged it :roflanim: :roflanim: :roflanim:
Need to go to Specsavers ;D ;D ;D ;D

What a dear little soul :)  Your children will have lots of fun with her, I'm sure.

A wonderful gift for your kids and the little mare. I am sure she will love all the attention.  :thumbsup:
