Horse Of The Week - Lemonade Pie.

Welsh Section A, Lemonade Pie. Welsh Section A, Lemonade Pie.[/caption] Lemonade Pie is a 3-year-old Welsh Section A pony. She stands at 11.1hh, and is owned by Angela Matthews. During the 20 months that Angela has owned Pie, she says “We have played with the Parelli program, she does lots of things on the line and with obstacles”. Pie has had a break from training over the winter, however she will soon continue her training to become a driving pony. Lemonade Pie is an interesting name, and there is some reasoning for it. Angela explains: “Her mother is Cherry Brandy; her two sisters are Cherry Pie and Amaretto; and her brother is named Whisky; which explains the food/drink element. Lemonade Pie has a large white patch on her belly, and a largely white face. Altogether, her markings are quite unusual for a Pedigree Welsh Section A. I chose the name because it is curious and unusual, just like her!” Pie has two blue eyes, and very sensitive white skin around them. Bright sunlight causes her eyes to weep, and before Angela tried EyeBright, Lemonade Pie would have continuous problems with runny and sticky eyes, which attracted flies. To help prevent this, Angela says Pie had been wearing a fly mask 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If she didn’t Lemonade Pie 2have her fly mask on (also known as her ‘shades’!) she would stand in her field shelter. Angela explains: “Within days of feeding Feedmark’s EyeBright, her eyes were not sticky. Ten days after using the supplement, Lemonade Pie was coping without a fly mask. I have been able to leave it off most days. She certainly hasn’t had it on at all this winter; whereas last year, despite the rain, she had the fly mask on constantly. She still tends to tear up a little if it is very bright but she is so much better, it’s quite incredible. Thank you, I am very pleased to find that it really does help”.
