End of an Era

One of the girl's ponies has been sold.

Trigger (yes I know but he came with that name), has been a wonderful pony for both the girls but sadly they have both outgrown him.  He has jumped at a national show jumping championship with  No2 daughter, competed succesfully at Tetrathlon regionals and cross country. He has also excelled at Pony Club Games with No1 daughter reaching Area and Regional finals.  Not bad for a hairy little pony!  Most important, he has been a great companion to both the girls, with whom they have had a huge amount of fun.

Over the last couple of weeks we have found a little lad who has fallen in love with him and tonight we delivered Trigger to his new home.  It will be 'Au revior' rather than 'Goodbye' as his new owner will be continuing his sporting career for the next few years and we will be able to follow him at events.  Still we are all very sad to see this little character go.

Now we will have to find another pony.......!

  4. Thanks for your message on blipfoto. I'd noticed you were blogging too from the links on impoftheyard's and sleepyduck's blogs. Like you, I'm not happy with what's happened, but I'm carrying on both blipping and blogging for now.
    Sad to see Trigger go, but he's going to have fun with his new family, I'm sure!

  5. He looks lovely. It's good that you will still see him.
