Being “Best Friends Forever” is something that many people strive for. Did you know that Shetland ponies make special lasting friendships too.

Best Friends Forever

Shetland ponies who are best friends will eat together, rest together and enjoy each other’s company. When they are apart they yearn to be together again and may call out (or whinny) to their best friend.

Shetland Pony “Besties”

At Shetland Pony Club, Crème Brulee and Honeybee have the greatest and longest lasting friendship.  They are devoted to each other and will happily spend every day in each other’s company.

Another special friendship exists between Sundance and Nottingham. When one was poorly, the other stayed with him in the stable as his companion – what a kind friend.

See the Shetland Pony “Besties” together in this week’s video: Shetland Pony Best Friends Forever

Join us this weekend to meet the Shetland pony best friends and make your own pony friend too, on our Own a Pony Experiences and Starter Rides.
