Two New Residents!

Monday, November 12th 2018

Today marked the exciting arrival of two new additions to the Foxglove team, meet Fawn (left) and Corvus (right), our two new Exmoor ponies. They will be with us throughout the winter, not only keeping our two current ponies, Lark and Taurus company, but also playing an important role in grazing the reserve. 

Fawn is about seven years old, making her the youngest of the pack, while Corvus is about twenty years old, making him the eldest and wisest (maybe…) of the group. 

All four ponies will now spend the winter on the Moorland, where they will help deliver our conservation grazing. Grazing by ponies, as well as sheep and cattle in some places, is a great natural way to manage many different habitats, including the Moorland, Wetland and Heathland here at Foxglove. 

Lark and Taurus (below), our year-round resident ponies, were excited to not only move onto the Moorland, but also to meet the two new arrivals.
