Shetland Pony Club TV

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

What do Shetland ponies do when they are not eating?

Did you know that Shetland ponies can graze for up to 17 hours per day? That’s a lot of eating.

When the grass is frosty, like this week in England, the ponies know not to eat too much grass, as it will make their stomach’s sore.

So, what else do Shetland ponies do?

Well, the ponies love to itch and rub and you can see who is doing this in the video.

They also scratch each other to make friends and bond with the others.

The Shetland ponies also love to trot, canter and gallop around the meadows for fun.

When their playtime is over, they snooze in the sunshine. Can you see Toffee and Teddy Bear taking a nap, so adorable!

Ponies do not lie down for very long, maybe thirty minutes maximum, as this can be unsafe for them in the wild.  They take it in turns to lie down and will do so at any time of day, with their friends watching over them.

So, the ponies keep very busy on their winter holidays and there’s plenty to do when the grass is frosty.
