Actually, I've seen my passport and found out that I'm really called Seva Dazzler, but for some reason nobody ever calls me that. It's strange, having such a double name is quite posh and I am a bit of a dazzler with my pretty face and my beautiful mane, don't you think? But enough of that, I don't want to sound like a girl! At least I don't have to wear make-up to be pretty like they do...
I've got great news! I've finally managed to persuade my Mum to take me on the biiiiig trip to Scotland and back together with my friends and Maggie. (I don't like Maggie very much, but psssssst don't tell anybody I said that, please! We're supposed to all be friends.) At first Mum thought it would be a bit complicated to go alone with the four of us, but I told her I'd be really good and not cause any trouble. She also thought I might have a bit of trouble because I just can't ever put on any weight, but I hope I'll be able to eat enough grass and oats on the way to keep a bit of fat on my ribs. I'll just munch faster and prove them all wrong! Yup, that's me, a bit stubborn. Little people have to be a bit stubborn or nobody takes us seriously...
Anyway, so Mum says we're going for one of those long walks again in a couple of months. We've already started training. Last Sunday we walked 25 miles and had a great time out! Mum says we'll be doing 25 to 30 miles every day once we leave! I love going with my friends and always want to be the fastest. They don't often let me, but I do pull every now and then just to make my point and show them I may be the smallest, but I'm still the strongest.
Lucy, who brings all those pretty pony boots to Britain has said I can have new ones, too! Just think! I'm going on this walk and Lucy is going to give us some great new boots to show to everybody we see. Remember my name? I'm going to Dazzle everybody with my boots and hopefully I can persuade more people to let their ponies have them. They would be sooooo much more comfortable. Just ask me, I'll tell you anything you want to know. Have a look at this pic. They have told me that this company brings the boots from America and anybody who wants to be nice to their pony just has to speak to Lucy to find out where to get shoes. They have got a website just like me, so you'd better go and have a look at them. I hope there are more happy ponies like me soon... good luck friends! Persuade your humans and nag if necessary!

Next morning: Yup, that was great! It rained and was quite windy and we - Maggie and myself - stayed dry and cosy inside. It's a little tricky to use the doors in the rain, but I'll get used to it.

After spending some weeks of listening to him begging, I've finally given in and Dazzy will be coming along, too. He's a few weeks behind on training, but with his energy and stamina, that shouldn't be a problem.
Only thing with him is that he is difficult to keep well fed - yes, a thin Shetland Pony, it's hard to believe - so he will be getting lots of extra food in the near future to fatten him up a bit. Hopefully we'll find a lot to eat on the way. It's Britain, it rains, there should be plenty of grass and oats shouldn't be too difficult to come by either...
