How (not) to move a Shetland pony to a new field
What’s the best way to move a Shetland pony to a new field? Join Rosemary as she shows us how not to do it!
Shetland ponies are known for having lively personalities and enjoying playing and having fun. They can be independent thinkers and don’t always do what we expect them to do.
Moving the herd to a new field with more grass should be easy, but is it?
