0:01:060:01:09

Today, I'm in the beautiful New Forest in Dorset

0:01:130:01:16

to meet twins Ted and Millie, and I hear they have some ponies.

0:01:160:01:20

Come on. Let's go say hello.

0:01:200:01:22

-Hello. BOTH:

-Hello, Ferne.

0:01:340:01:37

Hi. You must be Ted and Millie.

0:01:370:01:40

-Lovely to meet you. And you must be Mum. Hi.

-Hi, Ferne.

0:01:400:01:43

-And who is this? BOTH:

-Noble.

0:01:430:01:46

Noble is stunning. What type of pony is Noble?

0:01:460:01:50

-New Forest pony.

-So, he comes from right here in the New Forest?

0:01:500:01:54

-Yeah.

-That is fantastic.

0:01:540:01:57

New Forest ponies are a very popular breed

0:01:570:02:00

for children to learn to ride on and keep as pets -

0:02:000:02:03

they're known to be friendly.

0:02:030:02:05

Not all New Forest ponies are pets,

0:02:050:02:07

and some live out in the forest with other animals.

0:02:070:02:10

These ponies in the field are fabulous.

0:02:100:02:13

-Are they all of your pets?

-Yeah.

0:02:130:02:15

You are very lucky. They're gorgeous.

0:02:150:02:18

They all look quite different, so are they different breeds?

0:02:180:02:22

-Yes.

-Who is this white one behind me?

0:02:220:02:25

-Mouse.

-Mouse? That's a funny name for a pony.

0:02:250:02:29

-What type of pony is Mouse?

-A Welsh mountain.

0:02:290:02:33

A Welsh mountain pony.

0:02:330:02:35

What about that lovely little spotty one at the back?

0:02:350:02:38

-BOTH:

-Dinky.

-He is very, very cute.

0:02:380:02:41

What type of pony's Dinky?

0:02:410:02:43

-Shetland.

-Shetland.

-He's a bit of a Shetland pony, isn't he?

-Yes.

0:02:430:02:47

He's got lovely short legs.

0:02:470:02:49

How do you tell the difference between a pony and a horse?

0:02:490:02:53

Horses are bigger. Ponies are shorter.

0:02:530:02:57

-And so Noble's definitely a pony. BOTH:

-Yes.

0:02:570:03:00

-How old is Noble?

-Um...

-Four.

-Four.

0:03:000:03:03

-Four? So are you older than him? BOTH:

-Yes.

0:03:030:03:05

-Are you his big brother and sister?

-Yes!

0:03:050:03:08

What is your favourite thing about having Noble as a pet?

0:03:080:03:11

Looking after him.

0:03:110:03:13

Well, I can tell that you take great care of Noble.

0:03:130:03:17

Rory, can you tell us some more fun facts about New Forest ponies?

0:03:170:03:21

Of course, Ferne.

0:03:210:03:23

Ponies have been living in the New Forest for hundreds of years,

0:03:240:03:28

and there are around 3,000 roaming freely today.

0:03:280:03:32

A New Forest pony is known to be fast, strong,

0:03:340:03:38

friendly and intelligent.

0:03:380:03:40

They also come in lots of different colours, like bay...

0:03:440:03:49

chestnut and grey.

0:03:490:03:52

Having any pet, no matter what it is,

0:04:000:04:02

means you have to give it a lot of love, care and attention.

0:04:020:04:06

-Ponies can be pretty hard work, can't they?

-Yes.

0:04:060:04:09

-What is really important when you have a pony?

-A field.

0:04:090:04:13

That's right, a field is really important

0:04:130:04:15

so there's room for them to run around.

0:04:150:04:18

This field is perfect.

0:04:180:04:19

What else do we need to do?

0:04:190:04:21

What do you need to make sure they have in their tummies?

0:04:210:04:25

-Food and water.

-That's right. And what about where they live?

0:04:250:04:29

A clean stable.

0:04:290:04:30

-And I bet they love having a clean stable.

-Yes.

0:04:300:04:33

Since I'm visiting, can I help with any of these jobs?

0:04:330:04:36

-Yes, please.

-OK, come on. Come on, Noble.

0:04:360:04:40

-Wow! So, this is Noble's stable. BOTH:

-Yes.

0:04:440:04:48

-It is very nice. How often do you clean it?

-Every day.

0:04:480:04:52

Every day, and pick up the wet shaving, and poo pick.

0:04:520:04:56

-Whoa! Every single day, Ted?

-Yes.

0:04:560:04:59

-That is a lot of work, isn't it?

-We're almost finished.

0:04:590:05:02

-Do you want to help us do the last bit?

-I'd love to help. Come on.

0:05:020:05:06

-Is this is where he sleeps? BOTH:

-Yes.

0:05:080:05:11

It's pretty clean already. What do we need to do, then?

0:05:110:05:14

Just sprinkle the shavings down.

0:05:140:05:17

Put the clean shavings down to make a lovely bed for Noble.

0:05:170:05:21

-Would you sleep on this bed, Ted?

-Yes.

0:05:240:05:27

-You would, too, Millie?

-Yep.

0:05:270:05:29

-You'd have a wood shavings pillow?

-Yes.

0:05:290:05:33

And a wood shavings blanket?

0:05:330:05:35

THEY LAUGH

0:05:350:05:39

Well, this looks great.

0:05:390:05:40

What a comfy bed.

0:05:400:05:42

Such a lucky pony.

0:05:420:05:44

So, what do we need to do next?

0:05:440:05:47

-His food is already here, isn't it?

-Yes.

0:05:470:05:50

Noble eats hay and pony nuts.

0:05:500:05:52

What else do we need to do for him? What does he drink?

0:05:520:05:55

-BOTH:

-Water.

0:05:550:05:56

-Shall we go get some?

-Yes.

-OK.

0:05:560:05:59

Lots of water for Noble.

0:06:070:06:09

Yes.

0:06:090:06:11

You do so much for Noble, but is there anything that we've forgotten?

0:06:120:06:17

-Grooming him.

-OK, well, how about you go get Noble

0:06:170:06:20

and I will bring his water to the stable?

0:06:200:06:22

-Yeah.

-OK.

0:06:220:06:23

-Oh, he loves this, doesn't he?

-Yeah!

0:06:440:06:47

Wow, and look how shiny his coat is.

0:06:470:06:50

Brushing is really good

0:06:500:06:51

to remove the dust and dirt from the pony's coat.

0:06:510:06:54

It's also a really nice way of making friends with your pony,

0:06:540:06:58

because they just love it.

0:06:580:07:01

-Look. Look, he's turning his head. Does that mean he's happy?

-Yeah.

0:07:010:07:05

-I love him.

-I love him, too.

0:07:070:07:09

-The ponies out in the New Forest don't have stables like this.

-No.

0:07:140:07:19

And they don't have people to bring them food or water.

0:07:190:07:22

-They don't even have people to brush them either.

-No.

0:07:220:07:25

If they're sick or hurt, someone will come and look after them.

0:07:250:07:30

That is really good.

0:07:300:07:31

The ponies in the New Forest look after themselves.

0:07:310:07:34

They are very different from pet ponies.

0:07:340:07:37

If you visit the New Forest,

0:07:370:07:38

it's important not to touch them or feed them.

0:07:380:07:41

-Isn't that right? BOTH:

-Yes.

0:07:410:07:43

I've never actually seen New Forest ponies out in the forest.

0:07:430:07:47

Can we go on a New Forest pony-spotting adventure?

0:07:470:07:50

-BOTH:

-Yes!

-I would love to!

0:07:500:07:53

-We can go on our ponies.

-You can come, too.

0:07:530:07:56

-That sounds like so much fun! Shall we go?

-Yeah.

0:07:560:07:59

-CHILDREN:

-My Pet And Me!

0:08:030:08:06

You guys and Dinky and Mouse

0:08:080:08:10

look like you're ready for a pony-spotting adventure.

0:08:100:08:14

-BOTH:

-Yes.

-And Noble, you look great as well.

0:08:140:08:18

If your pet pony Noble could do absolutely anything,

0:08:180:08:21

what would he do?

0:08:210:08:23

DRUMROLL

0:08:230:08:24

CYMBAL CRASHES

0:08:240:08:26

If my pet could do anything,

0:08:260:08:28

he would trot along the lanes to the beach

0:08:280:08:32

and sit on a towel and watch the seahorses in the sea.

0:08:320:08:37

When he gets too hot,

0:08:380:08:41

he will jump into the sea

0:08:410:08:44

and swim along beside them, neighing,

0:08:440:08:48

because he is so happy.

0:08:480:08:50

The New Forest is a very large place.

0:09:020:09:05

Even though there are thousands of wild ponies living out here,

0:09:050:09:09

we'll need to look closely to spot some.

0:09:090:09:11

So, where are the ponies? I can't see any.

0:09:110:09:16

Out in the forest, in a shady spot.

0:09:160:09:20

I think it might be time to stop

0:09:230:09:25

and let our ponies have something to eat.

0:09:250:09:28

We are surrounded by all these beautiful flowers.

0:09:300:09:33

-Ted, what are they?

-Bell heather and ling.

0:09:330:09:37

-Do the ponies eat them?

-Yeah.

0:09:370:09:39

What else do the ponies eat around here?

0:09:390:09:42

Bracken, gorse.

0:09:420:09:44

-Do they eat grass, Millie?

-Yes.

0:09:440:09:46

-And they nibble trees.

-Nibble trees, too?!

-Yes.

0:09:460:09:50

Well, do you know what I still haven't seen?

0:09:500:09:53

I have not seen New Forest ponies in the forest.

0:09:530:09:55

-Shall we try and find some?

-Yeah!

-OK, come on, ponies, walk on.

0:09:550:09:59

There aren't any ponies at the pond.

0:10:060:10:09

I can't see any under the trees.

0:10:100:10:12

We can't find them anywhere.

0:10:120:10:15

Where are they?

0:10:160:10:18

FERNE GASPS There they are!

0:10:190:10:22

They've been enjoying a quiet, shady spot,

0:10:240:10:27

just like Millie said they would be.

0:10:270:10:29

Oh, they look like a little family.

0:10:310:10:33

And they're enjoying eating the flowers and grass, too.

0:10:350:10:39

Here they come galloping.

0:10:420:10:44

Look at them go. They're very quick at running. Look at that.

0:10:440:10:48

GIGGLING They're beautiful, aren't they?

0:10:480:10:52

We're keeping a safe distance from the New Forest ponies

0:10:530:10:57

because they're wild animals.

0:10:570:10:59

Ted, what is a baby pony called?

0:10:590:11:01

-A foal.

-A foal. The foals are very quick, aren't they?

-Yeah.

0:11:010:11:05

And they've got such long legs.

0:11:050:11:09

What do foals' tails look like?

0:11:090:11:11

-Small.

-They are. They're very small.

0:11:110:11:13

And they're very fluffy. They look like little brushes.

0:11:130:11:17

What pony is that one called?

0:11:210:11:23

The brown ones are called bays.

0:11:230:11:25

The pale brown ones are called bay roans.

0:11:250:11:28

-Off they go.

-Off they go.

0:11:360:11:39

-So, is this one of the ponies' favourite places, Millie?

-Yes.

0:11:390:11:43

-And where is your favourite place?

-An ice-cream shop.

0:11:430:11:47

Sounds great. Shall we get an ice cream?

0:11:470:11:49

-BOTH:

-Yes.

-OK.

0:11:490:11:51

-This ice cream is delicious, isn't it?

-Yes.

0:12:090:12:13

Good job today.

0:12:130:12:14

I've had the best day learning all about New Forest ponies.

0:12:160:12:19

We can't forget your pet ponies either, can we?

0:12:190:12:22

-BOTH:

-No.

-They were great.

0:12:220:12:24

-Thank you so much.

-Thank you.

-Thank you.

0:12:240:12:29

-Cheers.

-Cheers.

0:12:290:12:31

Mm!

0:12:310:12:32

-CHILDREN:

-My Pet And Me!

0:12:380:12:40

-Hi, Rory.

-Hi, Ferne.

0:12:420:12:44

Hiya, Hector.

0:12:440:12:46

-How was your day?

-Fantastic.

0:12:460:12:48

-I had such a great time with my friends. It was fun.

-Oh, great.

0:12:480:12:52

I've been catching up on some serious cuddle time with Hector.

0:12:520:12:55

I can see that. He's loving it.

0:12:550:12:57

Remember, you shouldn't touch an animal

0:12:570:13:00

unless the owner says it's OK.

0:13:000:13:02

Two pets you CAN play with are ours.

0:13:020:13:04

Go to the CBeebies website and play the My Pet And Me game.

0:13:040:13:07

What a fantastic time we've had. We loved meeting you and your pets.
