PIC BY DAN JAMES / CATERS NEWS - (PICTURED Roanie 10 having a cup of tea with sugar) - A horse-mad family have moved in with their dream NEIGHbours - after letting their three PONIES have the run of the house. Horse-crazy Heidi Northover, 46, allows her three miniature ponies - Star, four, Roanie, 10, and Hania, two, to have free rein of the house - and are regularly found trotting around her living room. The pampered ponies love nothing more than enjoying a cuddle with Heidi and her daughter, Corinna, 16, in front of the telly - despite having stables of their own outside. But these equines obviously prefer the luxury lifestyle - and prefer to spend time in the kitchen drinking water straight from the TAP and nibbling carrots from the familys vegetable stores rather than out in the cold. And incredibly, the family have even managed to house train the ponies - only suffering one nasty accident on the living room carpet.
