Hamish the Rotund ...

I took a friend and the video camera to see Hamish over the weekend and have some roughly stuck together footage. He's so fat, it's really very embarrassing but one of his current girlfriends is a TB and so he's been on a lot more pasture than he really needs whilst running with her - Libby too but I am letting her off as she is also seven months in foal now so I figure she is allowed a belly. Someone however asked me, after seeing the video, when Hamish's baby was due ... Oops!

Connemara pony breeding

Fascinating thread about Connemara breeding in the 'Sport Horse Breeding' COTH forum (mostly in the US but internationally historical information about bloodlines and past and present ponies of note).
