Well I've just got Izzy the Ball python settled (so much for poor eater)
Now my daughter wants a horse, so we get a loan horse which fell though, due to a difrence of opinion so off we go to the RSPCA in devon to see a 12.2 bay on Sunday.

Gosh what a lucky daughter. My mum made me practially sit an exam about the animal i wanted before i got anywhere near having one. I seemed to want a bit of a Noahs Ark when i was younger so she had to be strict as half the time the pet i just 'had' to have was a five minute wonder!
My first pony was 12.2, Peter Pan, he was black with a white star and as round as a barrel. I think i spent more time on his neck or the floor than i did in the saddle but he taught me how to ride thats for sure :)

I'm a great believer in children having pets but my mum taught me that i had to research and know my stuff long before i got the pet of choice and she would always insist on knowing how to care for them as well.

Baby royal python? Yeah they eat really well. It wont last though :wink:

Hi ant, it's no baby python it was a rescue case from proteus reptile trust he is a 3 year and will eat anything the wife puts in the viv.
The pony is a companion horse for scout my wife's horse so it just made sense to get one my daughter could learn to ride and I get to be the "best dad ever in the world" which just to good to miss out on. :D
