Facts about our Shetland Pony
Age:11 years old
Size: Mini 32 inches
Colour: Brown and white (skewbald)
Dinky came to us in 2016. He was born in South Wales and lived in the west country before coming to The Ranch. Now, he is an experienced pony at Shetland Pony Club and a great choice for smaller children to ride on and love.
Small and Cute
Dinky is one of our smallest Shetland ponies at only 32 inches, along with Snowdrop. Ponies and horses are measured in hands (the width of a grown-ups hand is about 4 inches). So Dinky is 8 hands high (8hh). He is called Dinky because he is so small. Dinky means attractively small and neat, cute and adorable and our new Shetland pony Dinky is all of those things.
A very pretty colour known as skewbald, Dinky has a rich chestnut brown and white coat. He has a very pretty head, with an adorable white patch on his nose, which is called a snip, and a striking light mane and a brown tail.
Dinky is well trained and loves children and he enjoys being brushed and ridden. He has made good friends with the other ponies at Shetland Pony Club. He gets on well with Nottingham – they have similar markings but Nottingham is grey and white instead.
