Kathleen Scott & a Manchurian Pony

Here is Mrs. Kathleen Scott meeting one of the Manchurian Ponies that was heading down to the snow in 1910.

Quail Island in Lyttelton Harbour was used as a training area for breaking in and getting these little sturdy fellas ready for the race to the South Pole.

As a side note, Mrs Scott went on to sculpture the Scott Statue that sat beside the Avon River on Oxford Terrace in memory of her late husband.
