    My daughter and her first car, update

    You will recall late last year my daughter got her first car, a Defender 300 tdi 7 seat station wagon. She got her full licence earlier this year. Well she has being getting good use out of it. Later on when things get back to some semblance of normality it will be used for the work and college commute. Until then it's the important stuff in her life.....

    If you don't like trucks, stop buying stuff.

    She has a pony (looks like a horse to me, but then again I do not understand the technicalities!) so we knew she'd be doing a lot of carrying stuff. She grew up with our Defenders so it seemed only natural to get her one of her own. I hope it stays with her for many years to come.

    How about a picture of the pony, Spud.
    Your daughter's nag must be under 14.2 hands. Not so far to fall.

    Ponies are just smaller and basically the devil at times My daughter and her first car, update V8Ian knows his stuff though 14.2 hh and under is a pony. There is a grey area in the middle (14-15hh) called Galloway (not quite a pony, not quite a horse) then over is a horse. Mine is a giant at 18hh My daughter and her first car, update
    Absolutely love your daughters defender My daughter and her first car, update

    Here is one taken a few years ago. He is veteran, mid twenties and only a few years younger than my daughter. When she moved away a few years to college ago she took him with her so we had to arrange accomodation for the two of them. She has him settled not far from where she lives so she is using the Land Rover daily to attend to him. She lives in a very rural area so she needed transport for college/work etc. As we always had Defenders and she grew up with them it seemed only natural she should have one of her own. Also there was the horsey, sorry pony business as well. You can almost see yourself in his coat it is that glossy.

    To be more accurate, 14.2 hands is a ball park figure. There are physiological differences between a pony and a horse. The height I quoted is a generalisation, certain breeds of each branch of both equines, inconsiderately break the human demarcation. Ponies are more intelligent, or as humans interpret, stubborn. Size for size, ponies are stronger than horses and stockier.
    Horses can be as loyal, affectionate and protective as a good dog.

    One of my sister's horses was a Connemara pony, 12 H from memory, and what a right little nasty piece of works that thing was! Most days it would terrify anyone or anything that went into its paddock by galloping straight at them/it (dog normally), rear up and playfully spar with the front hooves. Other days, it would be as timid as a mouse and come up and nuzzle.
    On one occasion, when I was wandering down the paddock with a biscuit of Lucerne, it did the 'Run and Rear' trick on me. As it came down I planted my fist right between its eyes. Not too hard, EDragon, but enough to have an effect. From that day forth, whenever I was tending to its needs, it never caused me any grief. Always a snicker in place of a snort.

    I want that Defender, Mr. Spudfan. Want, want, want! No, not want, more into the coveting, I reckon.
    He who takes offense when offense was not intended is a fool, yet he who takes offense when offense is intended is an even greater fool for he has succumbed to the will of his adversary.
