One Year of Beano


13.04.15 – 13.04.16

Exactly one year ago today I bought Beano, it was then and still is the best decision I have ever made.

In a time when I was feeling very low, he brought a bit of light back into my life. I might now be forever poor. I may have holes in my own shoes while Beano gets two new pairs every six weeks. I may not have had a new coat this year while Beano has an entire wardrobe of rugs. I may be tired from getting up early in the mornings. But I’ve not once looked back and regretted the decision to buy him, he is worth every penny, he is worth every early morning and he is worth having wet feet for.

Hearing him neigh at me over his stable door every single time I step foot onto the yard makes me smile no matter what else is going on in my life at that time. And that feeling is priceless.

So, here is to another fantastic year with my pocket rocket pony…

    Beano is such a beautiful pony! It’s amazing that you can afford him and I think he’s worth every penny you need to save in his favour!
