Pony Blog 2018
2018 has started with the most amazing news Highfox Faith topped the New Forest Pony Breed Society's Elite rankings for 2017, gaining more Elite points than any other pony in the country. She has been incredibly consistent at major shows and competitions, but this accolade was totally unexpected. At 131 cm (about 12.3) she is probably the smallest pony to ever top the Elite Scheme to date. Her sister Highfox Forever achieved the number one spot in the Elite rankings many years ago. Both mares are out of Rainy Day Girl.
Two years old in June, Highfox Hunky Dory (Samsons Spy x Rainy Day Girl) left home for the first time in April, to visit the New Forest where he was inspected by a panel of judges, who duly passed him as a future stallion. It was an awful damp day and very busy, quite an experience for a pony who had never been off the yard before. However he behaved beautifully and learnt a great deal.
