The website will still take orders but they will not be processed until Wednesday 5th January.

In our drive to become ever more environmentally sound, and yes because we enjoy it too, we are making our ‘Pony Power Postal Deliveries‘ a weekly event!

First thing every Wednesday morning ponies Blue and Rain, myself and lovely Eileen from the village and Letty Dog too, of course, set off on the 4.5 mile journey to the Post Office in Etal. The 9 mile round trip, including stopping to natter with delightful Postmistress Victoria, takes about an hour and a half. It is the perfect distance to exercise the ponies and the perfect time for Eileen and I to set the World to rights.

We are having a little sticker printed, featuring our beautiful girls, so you will know that your parcel started its journey by Pony Power! We hope that most of you will enjoy this little extra and be happy for your parcel to be dispatched on Wednesdays (please order by 3pm Tuesday) but if you are in a big hurry and don’t want to wait then please let us know in the ‘notes’ on your order 🙂

The ponies are on their winter break – Pony post will resume in the spring!
