Shetland Pony Club TV

Every Wednesday there is a new mini-film about our ponies.

Should you rescue a Shetland Pony?

Join Rosemary in this week’s video where she looks at some of the joys and problems of rescuing Shetland Ponies.

Today our ponies at Shetland Pony Club are not rescue ponies. They are pedigree (registered)  ponies and some of them have come from the Shetland Isles. However, if you’ve been following us for many years, you’ll know years ago we had the most wonderful rescue Shetland Pony called Cupcake.

Cupcake came from a home that wasn’t particularly good, they didn’t know how to look after him properly. We acquired him and he came to live at The Ranch for many happy years.

What are the problems with a rescue Shetland Pony?

Cupcake had not been feed correctly. This effected his:

  • Coat
  • Weight
  • Feet
  • Teeth

As a result rescue ponies often need a lot more medical attention. They need to see a vet more regularly and this costs more.

Most rescue ponies won’t have been to a dentist before, so the dentist bills are higher.

They need to see the farrier more as their hooves are often neglected and causes problems. They may even need remedial, specialist shoes which is also an added cost.

The cost of keeping a rescue Shetland Pony can be higher than a normal Shetland.

You also need to consider what experience your pony has had and if he is going to be a suitable pony to be around children. They can be frightened of certain situations. We wouldn’t recommend starting out with a rescue Shetland pony for riding for your children.

Cupcake brought a lot of joy, love and a lot of bills!

Although rescue ponies are often free to acquire they have bigger costs to keeping them than a regular Shetland Pony. Find out more about Cupcake here.
