SHETLAND PONIES. – Awesome little horses, did you know they are the strongest horses in the world – weight unit for strength??! They can pull up to twice their body weight whereas a Clydesdale can pull half their body weight!
CODY has been here since I started the Farmstay 6 years ago, – he is around 17 years old, still does led pony rides by the hour and pulls the sulky and wagon with “pizazz!”. I don’t own Cody, he is on loan….permanent loan.
HUNTER is 3 years old, tiny wee fellow with a huge heart that just loves little kids and old folk especially. He does wonderful led rides and is just starting harness training. 2 weeks ago he went to a nursing home as a “therapy horse”, walked through corridors, got hugged, patted, kissed and cried upon, and never blinked a eye! I am hoping to do more animal therapy work with him.
COCO is about 5 years old – He has been here 2 years and has been a challenge, From a nasty, spooky “mini monster” to a delightful spirited little fellow who is coming along really nicely, now doing led rides and just starting to do harness work.
I just love the work ethic of these little Shetland Ponies and thank Nature and Landscape Photography By Di Watson for these delightful portraits of my Shetland Ponies.
