Adorable ponies, what a fun day out!

You really are an amazing photographer! You blog always looks beautiful :)


Thank you for the photos! If I hadn't had seen them I don't think I would have believed that such auctions are still held anywhere in the world :) Well, it's England with it's somewhat strange, yet very adorable traditions...

A pony in a car boot might seems like a funny idea, but I can actually imagine myself trying to push one or two (or more...) onto a plane, as they'd have to come with me to Lithuania! :)

Great trip. Thanks for sharing! And have a nice and relaxing weekend. xxx


nicky your brave,i couldnt go to livestock auction.poor darlings must be so scared & then are they going to nice homes with lots of love or to someone awful?!! and the price is so wrong,a life for as little as £10.00?!!
anyway now i have that off my chest,the village looked lovely,stepping back in time & i love jam & jerusalem,it is hilarious!!
have a lovely weekend!! xx


What beautiful photos - I soooo want to be there too!

I have just seen your interview in Sewing World - lovely to see more pictures of the bears.

And to see a push for the Vintage and Handmade Fair; I am really looking forward to it...

I want the spotty one!! I have a special place for a spotty pony , I have always wanted one, and I am sure my donkeys would love one too!!


Oh my! I'd be no good there as I'd probably come home with half a dozen ponies!



Hi Nicky.. just catching up with a huge backlog of blogs.. and was so excited to read you had been to Chagford. This is the place that we plan to move to one day.. one day sooner rather than later!
I think we saw some of the very same ponies in a field on our stay in Chagford last week..So pleased they ended up in a safe pasture.
