Believe it or not, these beauties roam, relatively wildly, around the forests of Dunwich heath, Suffolk.
The thirty-something herd of Dartmoor ponies were introduced nearly 4 years ago, and have settled in quite nicely.
Being wild, walkers in the woods are asked to not to feed the ponies. However, they were definitely curious little things, and were interested in what we were doing in their forest.
Lovely hardy ponies, not the pot-bellied things that you see in the stableyard, these guys were introduced with the intention to encourage a “more varied vegetative structure which in turn increases the variety of wildlife”. Well, there we go.
