I had unusual company on my walk along the drystone wall. I was focussing on the stones when I sensed a presence and turned around to find this lovely creature almost breathing down my neck. Ponies are frequently seen wandering at will on Gower. They are all owned by someone but they graze freely on common ground. I have never seen this heavy, long-haired breed before. There was quite a group of them in the vicinity.

  1. Thank you. All the ponies on Gower have their winter warm coats, but this type seem to have a permanent long coat and feathered feet and are much heavier too. Someone suggested to me that they might be Welsh Cobs but I think they could possibly be cross-bred cobs which have traditionally been favoured by the Romani or travelling folk.
