More old pictures

I continue to plod on with scanning the old slides.

Pony trekking, Isle of Man, August 1967
Pony trekking, Isle of Man, August 1967

Here I am riding Inga (heaven knows why I still remember the pony's name when I can barely remember what I had for dinner yesterday!). She was a Norwegian Fjord pony. Photo taken in the Isle of Man, August 1967. I was about to set out on a short trek. I used to get a couple of rides each holiday and dreamed of owning my own horse one day...



Rhodri was the offspring of Donna the unicorn and an unknown stallion.

Deerpark, Nannau
Deerpark, Nannau
We never had our own land, so used to rent fields where we could. For a few years Rhodri lived on the edge of Nannau Deerpark. This is the gate leading from the road to the deerpark. Taken in 1991. If anyone is interested in Welsh history/legends, then this is the deerpark where Owain Glyndwr is said to have murdered his cousin and hidden the body in a hollow oak tree.

In other news, I am anxiously waiting for my lightbox, which is supposed to be being delivered today.
