Carneddau Ponies Collection with Gareth Jones and the Llanfairfechan Farmers

Wed, Nov 13 2013 02:59
The collection of the Carneddau Ponies is a centuries old tradition carried out by generations of the families who farm the hills. The ponies are collected and checked before being sent back out to roam freely atop the magnificent mountains. The Welsh Mountain Ponies are a breed that go back to Celtic times and possibly further. This is a studied rare breed and needs rare breed status to help protect them. Check out my day in photographs.

I visited Laurel Farm Equestrian Centre today to have a look round. Great facilities and a fantastic atmosphere being generated down there. I went and had a quick chat with these three Connemara Ponies and after a bit of deliberation they agreed to pose for me.Laurel-Farm
