Isn’t he gorgeous? Gorgeous and also, according to m’father, getting a little bit bolshy. Entirely understandable, seeing as he’s a colt. However, that lovely white blaze down his face means he is classed as a section B Dales pony (‘allowable’ white marks only include a star or snip), cannot be registered as an approved stallion, and will therefore have to be gelded in September.

He’ll be fine, I know he’ll be fine. The wondrous, beautiful Waterside Duke was a gelding. However I can’t help saying to the Caphouse boy “Enjoy your ballsiness whilst you’ve got it.”
