This week, watch the Shetland ponies running out to grass at the end of their busy summer riding programme.

Watch the Shetland ponies running out to grass

There’s a new paddock being made ready for the Shetland ponies to enjoy at the end of a busy summer of riding. Some of the ponies are excited to get there quickly to enjoy the long grass.

Which Shetland pony runs the fastest?

Watch to see which pony runs the fastest out to the grass – do you think Mufasa is the fastest, or is it Simba, Fudge or Prince William?

Who is best friends with Shetland pony Nottingham?

Nottingham is keen to get to the new grass and his best friend follows quickly after – but who is it?

Does Snowdrop rush to his new pasture too?

10 Shetland ponies eat a tasty breakfast

This week we join Rosemary at The Ranch where the Shetland ponies are all looking forward to a tasty breakfast.

10 Shetland ponies eat a tasty breakfast  

All the Shetland ponies love eating their delicious pony feed, and are keen to come in from the field to eat it. They can hear the sound of the feed being prepared and they can’t wait to eat a tasty breakfast.

The larger standard Shetland ponies have a bigger breakfast to give them lots of energy for their busy camp day ahead. They also have more grass in their paddock, as they need to eat more to keep them in good condition.

Can you name 10 of our Shetland ponies?

As they come in, Rosemary names 10 of the Shetland ponies.  Can you spot them all and tell the differences between them?

Shetland pony Creme Brulee enjoys a photoshoot

Shetland pony Creme Brulee is booked for a photoshoot with some special hoof boots today. Let’s join him as he gets ready for the camera crew.

Farrier visit to get ready

The first job for Shetland pony Creme Brulee is to have his feet trimmed by the farrier to make sure that he is looking his best. It’s a very skilled job to be a farrier – it takes 4 years of training and apprenticeship to learn the trade. Watch how it’s done – Crème Brulee is very relaxed and enjoys his pony pedicure!

Pony beauty spa to get ready

Pony pedicure complete, Shetland pony Creme Brulee is then brushed, shampooed and made to look gorgeous for his modelling session.

Photoshoot in action

Crème Brulee loves having his photo taken – there’s practice shots with the farrier, then lots more to make sure that he is looking his best. Can you see Creme Brulee in the perfect photo?

What do Shetland ponies eat in a day?

What do Shetland ponies eat in a day? Let’s find out with Rosemary as she shows us how to look after the ponies at Shetland Pony Club to keep them happy and healthy.

What do Shetland ponies eat in a day?

Just like us, Shetland ponies need a good breakfast early in the morning to give them plenty of energy for their busy day ahead. They love their tasty breakfast and are keen to come in and eat it in The Ranch, every morning.

Tasty breakfast

The Shetland ponies have a very small amount of Balanced Horse Feeds Show Mix, which is a delicious mixture of pony nuts and chopped chaff. It gives them enough energy to be well behaved for their mornings riding at Shetland Pony Club.

Lunchtime is important

The Shetland ponies need a proper lunchtime, with a full hour to eat grass and relax after their busy morning. They always have clean water to drink and enjoy a lick block of salt and minerals too.

Evening eating for the Shetland ponies

At the end of a busy day the ponies go into the rewilding fields where they browse on twigs, brambles and a range of native plants to vary their diet. They also get a treat of a little richer grass and herbs as a reward for a good day’s work.
