Dorset Branch Ponies

We have taken a bold step in purchasing four Dartmoor ponies, to enable us to manage our grassland sites more effectively. Scarface, Holly, Clara and Blackberry arrived at our Alners Gorse Butterfly Reserve. on 11 November, and settled in quickly. Anyone who would like to be involved with our Dartmoor herd should contact Kathy Henderson by e-mail: kathyhenderson720@yahoo.co.uk.

If you visit Alners Gorse, please help us keep an eye on the ponies, and report any problems to Kathy on 07806 752412 or to Nigel Spring 07981 776767. Please do not approach them or feed them: we need them to remain semi-wild; and please keep your dogs under close control near them.
