WANTED ... can you or a friend of yours help ?

Posted by Polly Ruddle on Wednesday, February 20, 2013, In : 2013 
Trish Lebus is still searching for a younger version of her beloved old boy.  She would favour Welsh Sec. D or similar, around 15 hh, probably between 5 and 10 years, preferably broken to harness but not essential, forward going and well mannered.  She knows she is reaching for the moon but there must be one out there somewhere.  
She would be so grateful if you know of anything, mare or gelding.  Please contact her on mobile: 07711162485, or by email on
Thank you....
