Very sad for all our family is that Charlie, our much loved old Exmoor Pony, had to be 'put to sleep'. Charlie had never had a day's illness in his life but somehow managed to get cholic, and a twisted gut. Loved by everyone who met him Charlie was a great ambassador for his very rare breed and will be missed by far more than just our family. I will change the 'Ponies' page when I can face it. Here is a small photo of Charlie which will link to a very nice large, fast loading version if you click on the photoCharlie Mouse of Greenlease - as sweet, kind and mischievous a character as you could hope to meet in life.
