It seems that I have read rather a lot of pony books over the last couple of weeks.
I go through phases where I will read one pony book after another and completely immerse myself in them. I have to force myself to read something different and break the run.
There is just something so cosy about them and I suppose a bit of nostalgia for my childhood spent reading them. I tend to read more vintage books than modern ones and there are so many that I think I could keep reading for the rest of my life without repeating myself!
I am particularly fond of the Pullein-Thompsons, Ruby Ferguson and Monica Edwards – although hers can be hard to find. Having said that, I love Patricia Leitch, Gillian Baxter, Joanna Cannan… I think my favourite might depend on who I happen to have read most recently!
Once the ponies are done for the evening the best way to finish the day is curling up in front of the fire with a cup of tea and a pony book. Bliss!
