This is me, by me, for my daughters when they are far away from home. I miss them and want them to feel they can be close-by if they want. I write this for them and if you like the Blog, then welcome to my family.
Well, I am firstly a mother and secondly a photographer. I live in Shetland, Britain’s most northerly outpost.
I have ridden ever since I can remember but was given my first pony when I married, had 2 children and was in my thirties.
Now, two decades later, I have a few rescue and non-rescue Shetland ponies as well as some Icelandic horses for riding, training and breeding plus three pet sheep. Animals that need me seem to find me and I try to offer them all the best home with the most love.
This is Thordale Stud. Home of The Minions.
In between previously running a very successful riding and trekking school, and then subsequent carriage driving centre, I managed to revisit an old passion – photography.
I specialise in capturing the inner personality of Shetland ponies, as well as the bigger equines I stumble upon.
What else? Oh yes, sometimes I am recovering from some spinal surgery. Life can be rather difficult and slow at times but I am trying to occupy my day promoting the Shetland pony in its natural environment.
Hence this blog. I want you to see what I see in these brilliant ponies that never cease to bring a smile to everyone’s face.
Oh, and you can follow me on Twitter and somewhere on Facebook too.
