Summer with Beano

On April 13th 2015 I bought Beano. He is the first pony I have ever fully owned myself and he is the (and I’m pretty sure always will be) the best purchase I have ever made. This summer with Beano has been incredible and this is going to be quite a photo heavy post but I make no apologies as my pony is gorgeous (I know, I know, I am biased) and the past five months are ones that I would like to remember forever, so here goes…

Buying Beano was definitely not an impulsive decision; it took several months of budgeting, teamed with endless phonecalls with people at home and in between that HOURS were spent researching into the costs before I finally decided that I could afford to begin my pony search. Just a few weeks later I stumbled across Beano and fell in love. I’ve always said that your gut instinct can tell you far more than any rationally thought through decision and I knew straight away that no matter what happened, Beano would be coming home with me. So many people told me that buying him was a bad move but I ignored them all, paid more for him than I had budgeted to spend on any pony and about five months later I’m still ecstatically happy that I was stubborn enough to fight for him.

Beano is quite honestly living proof to me that if you work hard enough, things will eventually fall into place. Every time that I look at him I just beam with pride – he honestly brightens my day whenever I see him and that feeling is priceless. It won’t be long before I have to give him a big hug and say goodbye for a few weeks when I head back to uni but I just keep reminding myself that I will be leaving him in the capable hands of his sharer and that it won’t be that long until I am able to pop back to pay him a little visit one weekend. For now though I don’t want to think of that day so I will just leave you with these photos while I think back to the wonderful memories that I have made this summer with my fantastic pony!
