I did a lot of searching online to try to find a Fell Pony, getting my start mostly from the farm advertisements that I found in the Horse Illustrated issue. I scoured the horse classifieds online, but really didn’t find a lot of options. After a couple of months searching, I finally came across Mustahavoen Rheged’s Lemon Drop, with a breeder in Tennessee (DreamHayven). She was the only mare I found in the USA that was trained to ride, of breeding age, calm, friendly and beautiful. I contacted the Melissa and inquired about Lemon Drop’s price. I admit, I had sticker shock after hearing back. More sleepless nights and lots of website stalking on Lemon Drop ensued (yes, I am one of those people..). After 6 months of ogling over Lemon Drop and talking with Melissa, I just couldn’t walk away from her. She was exactly what I was looking for in a mare. Lemon Drop joined our family in June of 2013.                                                                                                                                            

LD has a phenomenal personality.  She is kind, watches over and takes care of Jayden.  She is especially fond of kids.  She is also the best "auntie" for our weaning foals.  She teaches them herd manners and protects them from the older horses.  

Since we brought her, Lemon Drop has produced one colt in 2014 (Hardenberg Kronprinz Olaf) by Bodini.  In 2015, LD started her show career.  She and Jayden bonded instantly and won many ribbons and trophies.  LD and I did pretty well too.  Good news, LD is pregnant by Danny, bad news, she will not be showing in 2016.   But we will continue to ride her and keep her in shape.
