A kind friend told me about you, I apologise for that. I love to witter, most of the time utter nonsense - and occasionally something not quite so useful. I believe you have an ejection button so all is not lost. Meanwhile, if you dont mind me adding the occasional morsel I shall try not to taste suspiciously like the curate's egg.

Welcome Persephoneshe! Here is your party bag, with some e-cake, an e-hug, some e-tea and a bag of gratitude.

Why apologise about being told about us? We're always happy to have new people join the forum! :D

I don't think we do have an ejection button, so come on in with your morsels! :-)

How do, Persephoneshe.

You're in one of my favourite parts of the country. I spent quite a bit of time in the New Milton area whan I was younger.

An enduring memory is of a picnic on Bashley Common, near The Rising Sun.

I was happily sitting on the rug, munching away at my egg and cress sandwiches with the crusts cut off, when I was suddenly aware of being on my own.

Next thing I know, this chuffing great black thing thunders past my nose, I scream and burst into tears.

Some of the ponies had stampeded across the common. All my relatives had seen them coming and scattered! The bastards left little 3 year-old me sitting on the rug on my own to be nearly trampled by a bloody great horse!

I don't trust horses (or my family!) to this day.

That is a shame because I could tell you some lovely stories of ponies on the Forest. I remember in particular driving up a hill one evening just as the sun was setting (I would describe where but I am a geographical imbecile and can never explain my whereabouts). At the top of the hill I saw a foal, stood in the centre of the road silhouetted against the sun. I slowed down waiting for him to dash off but he didnt. Eventually I rolled to a stop a couple of yards away from him. I swear he looked me up and down and then he began the most beautiful dance you ever did see. He bowed and shook his mane and pirouetted for all he was worth - it seemed to go on and on and I just sat there loving every moment. Eventually he put his feet down and came trotting over to my window, looked at me as if to say, 'there you go, aint I wonderful?' and trotted off into the gorse....a truly magical moment.
