Hello all,

What does anybody know about the pit ponies? Up and down the country there must have been hundreds and thousands of them, i work at an old lead mining centre (Nenthead)and i ride and i got to thinking about what breeds may have been used, how people treated or thought of them, how long the poor sods lasted or if there are any books or stories about them? What do ya reckon?
