Lady Luna in the Daily Mail!

The Daily Mail featured orphan foal Tippbarlake Lady Luna in a double page spread on Sat 25 November. Their photographer Murray Sanders visited us last week. We wondered how Lady Luna and her small herd would respond - and they were amazing. Lady Luna still gave us the hoped for shot of her lying down next to me and she and the other ponies gave Murray some wonderful photo opportunities out in the paddock. Of course, they were keen to show him one of their favourite places too - the mud wallow. And Lady Luna timed her dramatic trot right through it just as Murray was saying, "I hope she doesn't........" But thankfully, Lady Luna wasn't in the mood for lying down in it and stayed fluffy-looking for this picture.  We're grateful to Murray for a lovely photo shoot and to the Daily Mail for featuring Lady Luna and mentioning both the Exmoor Pony Project and Wild Herd Whispering
