Simba came to Shetland Pony Club in 2020. He lived in the west country before coming to The Ranch.

Simba is our only pony that is a pure chestnut colour, with a chestnut mane and tail.  He is different from Creme Brulee and Creme Caramel who have flaxen manes and tails and Toffee, whose mane is grey.
