Creme Brulee the Shetland Pony’s Modelling Day

Let’s join in on Creme Brulee the Shetland Pony’s Modelling Day and find out what he needs to do to get ready to look his best for the photographer?

Farriers visit before the Modelling Day

Creme Brulee needs his hooves to be in tip-top shape and really smart, so the farrier is visiting him to give his hooves a special trim up.  Trimming hooves is a very skilled job and the farrier has to train for 4 years to learn his trade. Creme Brulee knows that he has to be patient and is very good with his pony pedicure!

Photo shoot for Crème Brulee

Come and see Creme Brulee the Shetland Pony being brushed and washed and all ready for his Modelling Day.  He loves being the centre of attention and has a great time at his photoshoot, with lots of gorgeous pictures taken.  Well done Crème Brulee!

Farriers in the field

Farriers in the field

The Shetland ponies are back to work and the farriers are in the field.  The farriers are the people who look after the ponies’ feet.  They are highly skilled.  It takes 5 years to learn how to become a farrier.

At Shetland Pony Club the farriers come every seven weeks to trim the ponies’ hooves to keep them in good shape.

Do the ponies mind?  Do they run towards or away from the farriers?
