Shetland Pony

Mini Shetland Pony 2

 

I came across this tiny little fella while out walking today.  He shares his field with a few rescued horses, ponies and other Shetlands and even a few chickens. I’ve seen plenty of Shetlands and even seen plenty of them in Shetland but I have never seen one as small as this before.  To give a sense of size, the fence is less than four feet high.  He is cute but don’t let that fool you.  Having stayed in Shetland, anything that can survive winter (and even summer) up there is tough.

    Are you sure he’s not a miniature? Even for a Shetland he looks small – not that I have any real experience of them…

    They do look nice tho’, and less intimidating than the shire horses that tower 3 feet over you!!

      That’s true but I do love Shires. I see those too and they are just magnificent.
