OK, we have all wished for a Unicorn but this is the stuff dreams are made of – your very own unicorn!
Some say they are mythical animals and don’t actually exist while others say they are back and are being hired out for birthday parties and weddings.
OK, so they’re not actually the “real thing” but they are as close as any of us can actually get to a unicorn. The unicorns are ponies with a glitzy makeover with horns and fantastically coloured hair dye (and a bit of paint for good measure).
Ali Grange, 37, bought a unicorn horn for her pony Cherry Blossom, 15, as a treat for her daughter Rose, seven, and her friends. They loved it so much Ali set up Cotswold Unicorns and is now attending events with Cherry Blossom, while dressed as a fairy.
Ali said: “Rose would invite her friends to come to see Cherry Blossom to ride and groom her and I got her a unicorn horn.
“The shy children were more keen to join in when she wore it and that’s how it evolved. We’ve been going to parties for two months.
“We’re asked to children’s birthdays, Brownies and Beavers, schools and even weddings.”
Cherry Blossom spends 30 minutes appearing at each event and does a maximum of four each week.
