This is the third New Forest Friends story, and like all the books it aims to tell a story of human activity from the animals’ point of view. In this case it's all about the ponies, and how we often forget that they live like wild animals and can't be approached like a horse you'd see in someone's field.
So discover a little more about New Forest ponies as Brockenhurst the Badger explains to Beaulieu the Hedgehog about feeding, shading and treating the ponies right.
All the New Forest Friends books aim to entertain and educate. In the corners of all the picture pages you’ll find four different British animals or birds that many children, and indeed adults, may not be aware live within the forest.
“New Forest ponies...are not wild animals, they are domestic animals like cows, sheep and pigs, but they are not tame either. In this book you will see why it's best to love them from a distance – best for you and the ponies.” Chris Packham on New Forest Friends And The Pony Pests
