Hoofprints in Eden
Based on a 2-year-long series of interviews with established Fell Pony breeders, this book explores the Cumbrian pony breed and its Northern traditions at the start of the new millennium.
Read about the history of the Fell pony, the free-living herds on the fell and their vital links with hill farming. The farmers and breeders themselves tell the story of the ponies’ characteristics, their traditional ways of keeping them, and the events of a typical year.
Fully illustrated. Includes a dictionary of Cumbrian farming expressions!
