Helping Out

By keith selmes  
The larger pony is trying to take off her winter coat - its June already - and the younger one, just months old, is helping. These are just on the southern edge of dartmoor

Cute! Shame so many Dartmoors are rounded up to be sold at meat markets.

Lauren, there are not many ponies sold for meat now, as the live export laws are dificult. There are probably some going illegally, but the numbers of ponies on the moor are much smaller now. The tendency is to breed skewbalds and piebalds as childrens ponies, its the pretty colours that sell, if at all. Thats actual moorland hill ponies, not pedigree dartmoors, which are seldom run on the open moor, and are a quite different market.
