I first saw Apollo as a weanling colt at Ambaura Pony Stud whilst visiting with friends. I've always been a sucker for blue eyes and unusual markings and it was instant love, but he'd been sold, so we continued on our wander around the beautiful property.



As a member on the yahoos miniature horse and pony group, months later I wound up meeting his new owner, who was selling him due to a change in direction, and of course I bought him instantly! Apollo is the most beautiful natured pony to do anything with, and everyone who has seen him has loved him. He stands out with his blue eye and baldy face, but his unusual colour makes him draw your eye also.

His daugher Deltree Arabella took out Reserve Champion Miniature Pony Mare/filly against much more mature mares too!

And of course, Apollo is a real character and so so playful! Here he is playing his favourite game "Kill the Bucket"!


He makes me laugh EVERY day!
