Horses & cows – what’s the difference in their stomachs?

Horses & cows both like eating grass, but did you know that they digest their food in different ways.  In this pony advice and information film, you can learn what’s the difference in their stomachs.

You may have noticed that horses are always eating, but sometimes cows are just sitting around.  Are they lazy?  Find out what they are doing and why cows behave differently to horses.

Shetland Pony Stampede

Shetland Pony Stampede

There’s a Shetland Pony Stampede going on at The Ranch!  What’s caused all the excitement for the ponies?

Well, it’s a really windy day at Shetland Pony Club – so windy that we have closed for the day.  The ponies are out having fun.  They have “the wind under their tails” and are having a mini Shetland Pony Stampede in the field.

Why do they do this?

Too hot to trot!

Phew, it’s too hot to trot for the ponies in this “Fabruary” weather.

There’s a winter heatwave in England with the hottest February ever recorded this week. Contrast that with the “Beast from the East” that we had last year.

It’s tough for the Shetland ponies in the winter heat, as they still have their thick winter coats. See how they are coping in this “Fabruary” weather.

We’re so excited to be preparing for another season of pony fun! The ponies and team are getting ready to welcome you all at weekends and holidays from 2 March 2019.

Shetland Pony Playtime

It’s Shetland pony playtime at the ranch and the warm weather is making the ponies full of energy and play.

The ponies are galloping about having fun playing and rolling together…and they seem keen to get back to work when the ranch opens in March. The warm weather means the ponies are enjoying playing together in the paddock.

The ponies all live together in the fields and keeping them in this natural way means the ponies can express themselves through play…rather like children.  Some of the ponies love to roll.. watch the video to find out who likes rolling best.
