Rivington Sun Chance
Chance had a photo shoot as he is for sale (pity we can't keep them all). He was filthy, hairy and needed a trim but then it is winter and he's enjoying being a bog pony. Chance was born while I was away at the 2008 Royal Adelaide Show. His dam didn't mother him and he consequently didn't get any much needed colostrum. My husband had a battle on his hands to get Chance's dam to accept him and after a few anxious days she did. The next battle was to keep Chance healthy so he and his dam were locked up away from any other ponies. He is one tough pony and went on to win Best Welsh Foal (7mths), Best Foal Futurity (2yr old) and Supreme Welsh B and Best Welsh Exhibit at the 2011 Welsh Youngstock Show.
