I love Suffolk Punchs When I was younger we had a Suffolk Punch lawnmower and when it broke I made dad keep it because of the name! I didn't realise they were in danger, I love all the large breeds.

I love Fells, not least because they can even carry ME

sadly this breed is also endangered

Only local shows although dd1 did show her for at Devon County Show last year. Unfortunately she has sweet-itch so it is a struggle to keep her looking presentable. She also had a mild bout of laminitis just after Devon County. It was a 2 hour journey and I think the stress may have brought it on. She doesn't really enjoy showing and I'm not competitive enough so I'm just a happy hacker now .

We are lucky to have a mare and foal Suffolk Punch in our village and they are lovely. Trouble is they are not really good for anything (other than ploughing and taking to shows) hence they are dying out. I love them and hope this grant keeps them going.

My favourite horse EVER was my mare Heidi!

My Heidi is going off tomorrow on trial to (hopefully) a new home. Dd1 has well and truly outgrown her and realistically I haven't got time to start the younger ones riding at the moment. If they want to pootle about my other ponies are quiet enough.

My 2 boys weren't really interested in the horses so I've given up now - I ride other people's instead
