It’s an exciting day at The Ranch because our new Shetland pony, Snowdrop, is arriving.

Snowdrop is a small, white Shetland pony, properly described as a grey pony. He is 9 years old and very little at just 33 inches high.

What happens when a new Shetland pony arrives?

When a new Shetland pony arrives at The Ranch it’s important to let him settle after his journey and he has to stay in the stable until the vet has checked all his vaccinations.

Then it is time to meet his new friends at Shetland Pony Club. Introducing a new Shetland pony has to be done carefully, as they may squabble at first.

Find out which of our ponies wants to be his friend and who doesn’t.
