Join Rosemary as she shows us how to care for Shetland ponies in Storm Arwen, the first named storm of the winter.

Can Shetland ponies live outside all year round?

Shetland ponies are bred to survive in the harsh conditions of the Shetland Islands, where there are no trees for shelter and the weather is wet, cold and windy. They can live outside all year round as they have thick coats and fluffy tails to protect them.

How do we keep the Shetland ponies safe in a storm?

The Shetland ponies are best kept outside, in a large field where there is natural shelter to protect them. They feel safer outside with their friends, where they can be together and find shelter, rather than being alone in a stable.

Which field is best for the Shetland ponies in Storm Arwen

Rosemary has taken a close look at the wind direction and is moving the ponies to another field. She has chosen a field where there is the most shelter from the storm. Do they think it’s a good idea to change fields?
