How to make a simple Shetland pony handprint

Thank you to our many loyal followers from all over the world as well as members, customers and staff for your kind messages now that The Ranch is closed due to the coronavirus. We hope that you are all safe. The ponies are well and missing you this spring.

This week, as well as updating you on the ponies, Lucy and Amy are bringing you another “Crafty Shetland Pony” idea.  It shows you how to make a simple Shetland pony handprint, which you can do at home.

We hope you enjoy making it and would love to see some photos of your creations; do email them in to:
