Falkland

 

Lived to Age 33 Years
Colour: Blue Dunn
Size: Mini

Falkland was a very special pony. He retired to us from The Parachute Regiment here he was the Regimental Mascot for 26 years. He was never ridden but marched in front of the band wearing a special rug. He had a permanent retirement home at Shetland Pony Club where he spent his days lazing and grazing with his friend Cupcake.

In this video you can see Falkland when he first arrived at Shetland Pony Club for his retirement.

In 2012 he marched in the 30th anniversary of the Falklands War parade and in 2014 was guest of honour at a parade to remember the horses lost in the First World War.

Falkland sadly died in June 2015, aged 33.

In this video we pay tribute to him; our very special retired Shetland pony.
