HISTORY OF THE WELSH MOUNTAIN PONY
Life was far from easy for those early Welsh ponies. They faced elimination when Henry VIII decreed that all horses under 15 hands be destroyed. Somehow some survived! Before mechanization, they became popular all across Great Britain doing heavy work on the small farms. As well they provided valuable transportation pulling sizeable loads and as riding and pack animals. They served their masters faithfully and displayed a strength and stamina that many horses twice their size couldnt match. Because of this they were in great demand to haul the coal out of the depths of the mines. Fortunately the lot of the present day Welsh Mountain ponies has changed to one of relative ease. Please support my Welsh Mountain pony Dakota during his Nov. HOTM run, and to those of you that are already supporting him a huge thank you!! Leaving votes for everyone! Maria, Dakota N the girls
