A Message from Traprain Pony Whistler

A Message from Traprain Pony Whistler (alias Pegasus aka Midnight)

I wanted to share some photos with you as a Celebration of the wonderful work the Moorland Mousie Trust do on behalf of my fellow Exmoor pony pals. 

This is me, Whistler, as a newly arrived foal at the MMT Exmoor Pony Centre
MMT rescued me when I was just 6 months old and through the love, patience and devotion of my human friends at the MMT Centre I was given a new beginning.
and this is me today : a member of the MMT 13 Pony Kings of Traprain
As you can see from the photos, today I am very proud to say I am one of the 13 PONY KINGS OF TRAPRAIN - as well as being "step-dad" to youngest Pony Bob.

No pony could have greater friends than I have within my herd - and each one of us have our own "MMT story".....

We are proud to be able to say we are on the front cover of the 2016 MMT Calendar!

My herd hope you will feel keen to support our wonderful MMT family. We know first hand (or hoof....) that every penny raised through the sale of this Calendar is spent on ensuring the protection and survival of my wonderful breed, the Exmoor Pony.

I am no longer a bewildered 6 month old foal rescued by MMT but instead rather proud to be called a very important MMT Traprain Conservation Pony..... Without MMT giving me a bright new beginning my outlook would have been very different.....

A great way to support my MMT Charity is through the sale of the 2016 Calendar. It has wonderful photos inside of my pony pals at North Berwick including the wonderful and wise Pony, Fir. There are humorous photos, a photo of "the Gathering of the Anchor Herd", yearlings at the Exmoor Pony Centre, a foster home pony - ponies displaying their wonderful Exmoor pony winter coats - and much more!.....

Liz now has a limited supply of these wonderful calendars for sale at the Traprain Car Park stall at weekends (ponies and weather permitting!) but you can also purchase the Calendar direct from MMT for just £7 (plus p & p) by clicking here, where you can also see the beautifully designed new 2015 MMT CHRISTMAS CARD which is now in stock at the Centre!
