We had lost touch with Balderick so were thrilled when we received this email! My sister Julia still owns Eiros Annie and she is ridden by Julia's daughter Ella.

Hello, I own the above pony Holme Grove Balderick, stable name "Spongey", and found your website with a beautiful picture of his stunning sire. I wondered if you could give me any information regarding my pony's mother. She is/was a welsh pony Sec. B I think called Eiros Annie bred by H E Roberts. Spongey was born on 10/06/1991 and his registration number is TBFPB297/94.
I have searched the Welsh pony websites and googled the breeder and the name but cannot find anything.
I would be very grateful if you have any information as Spongey is my daughter's much loved pony. I attach a couple of photos of Spongey for you, he does everything from driving to Pony Club.
