A new arrival!
Visitors who came to Carding Mill Valley at the end of February had an unexpected bonus to their visit when at 3:50pm on Saturday the 21st a foal was born in the valley.
During the labour, the other pony (presumably the mare's mother or sister) stood next to her throughout obviously guarding her and keeping a close watch - a tender sight. A large crowd gathered on the car park side of the stream watching the event. It must have been quite an education for most, especially for the children watching!
Thank you to Barrie Raynor who took these beautiful images and gave us the details of the event.
