Once upon a time there was a lovely boy called Moon Shadow.

He was a lovely cuddly handsom boy and he loved his wives, even if they didn't always love him. He was gentle and patient with them, liking to bring a little romance into what some stallions may have thought of as a chore...

And once the huffing and puffing was over with he liked a handful of pony nuts and a pat and a little snooze cuddled up to his human.

One day a new girl came along called Poppy. Shadow was besotted. Unfortunately Poppy wasn't- oh dear!

Naughty Poppy resisted Shadow's courting and played hard to get...



But after a little Shadow magic she came round to his way of thinking


And we are so pleased - because the result is...


Promise!


Summerwood Dragonfly Promises- is his official name but he will be Promise to his friends...


Born in the early hours of this morning, mum and baby doing fantastic!

There will be more photos- many more! I have 55 already!! You must tell me when you get fed up of them! But for now I have an afterbirth to find and check over- yuk!



Just thought you would like to see the new addition to our happy ever after family... Jx

What a lovely blog. I read quite a bit and your photo of Chatsworth is very similar to some of ours. We live about 10 minutes from Chatsworth, anyway. We also have horses and chickens and moved here about 18 months ago (so you sound a lot like me!) Pop over to my blog some time, you'll be very welcome.
