    Great pictures, making me homesick. I grew up on the Southampton side of the New Forest and miss it.

    Please be careful with the ponies though, they are temperamental parents.

    Thanks for posting.

    They can be indeed. One kicked my daughter and drew blood. Tbf she normally rides a 17HH horse so wasn't too phased by it and approaches them with care...

    It is a lovely area...
