Our new Shetland pony, Snowdrop, is getting used to life at The Ranch with all the other Shetland ponies.
When a new pony arrives, he needs to make friends with all the ponies and we must be careful that they don’t chase him. When he has made lots of friends, he can start to join in with every activity at Shetland Pony Club.
Who makes friends with new Shetland pony, Snowdrop?
Find out which 3 ponies make friends with new Shetland pony, Snowdrop, and who is his best friend?
It’s an exciting day because a big box has arrived at the Ranch and Creme Brulee the Shetland pony unwraps a parcel to find out what’s in it.
Creme Brulee is a famous Shetland pony, who is the Face of Amazon Pets for 2019. He is very photogenic and has lots of fans, both online and at The Ranch. Sometimes, he gets things sent to him to try out.
So, what is in the parcel for him? Find out as Creme Brulee the Shetland pony unwraps a parcel at The Ranch.
