Equine Partners 

Pudgey is 15 and is the sweetest pony in the world; if there was a perfect pony, it would be Pudgey. He is kind, gentle and enjoys his work. 
Moghul is a 6 year old with quite the personality. He is the smallest pony at the farm but somehow manages to cause the most trouble. He is mischievous and playful and loves dressing up on pony play dates! Equally he loves to eat and is on a permanent diet!
