There’s a Shetland Pony Stampede going on at The Ranch! What’s caused all the excitement for the ponies?
Well, it’s a really windy day at Shetland Pony Club – so windy that we have closed for the day. The ponies are out having fun. They have “the wind under their tails” and are having a mini Shetland Pony Stampede in the field.

There is snow at Shetland Pony Club, so how do our Shetland ponies cope with the Beast from the East? That’s the name given to the extreme cold conditions that are affecting the UK this week. There’s an easterly wind coming from Siberia which is making our weather much colder than usual.
Do the Shetland ponies mind?
Watch the video to see how Hector Moonbeam, Sundance and Nottingham are getting on at the ranch in the icy wind:
They have hay in case the grass gets completely covered with snow.
Rosemary breaks the ice on the water troughs every morning and night to make sure that the ponies can drink when they need to.
Are the Shetland ponies happier in the cold or in warm weather?
