Our New Shetland Pony Bilbo arrives

Our new Shetland pony, Bilbo, is arriving at the Ranch today – how exciting!  We are so looking forward to meeting him and making friends with him.


Today is the day when our new Shetland pony, Bilbo, is arriving at the Ranch – how exciting!

Bilbo has just had a short journey to get to us.  He has come from a lovely family where he has been ridden and cared for by some children who have sadly outgrown him.

New friends for Shetland pony Bilbo

Bilbo goes out into our meadows to meet his new friends.  Will they want to say hello and play?

Elgin Sunset is not interested, but what about Toffee and Snowdrop? Do they play with Bilbo and make friends with him?

How to care for Shetland ponies in Storm Arwen

Join Rosemary as she shows us how to care for Shetland ponies in Storm Arwen, the first named storm of the winter.

Can Shetland ponies live outside all year round?

Shetland ponies are bred to survive in the harsh conditions of the Shetland Islands, where there are no trees for shelter and the weather is wet, cold and windy. They can live outside all year round as they have thick coats and fluffy tails to protect them.

How do we keep the Shetland ponies safe in a storm?

The Shetland ponies are best kept outside, in a large field where there is natural shelter to protect them. They feel safer outside with their friends, where they can be together and find shelter, rather than being alone in a stable.

Which field is best for the Shetland ponies in Storm Arwen

Rosemary has taken a close look at the wind direction and is moving the ponies to another field. She has chosen a field where there is the most shelter from the storm. Do they think it’s a good idea to change fields?

Autumn ride with the Shetland ponies

It’s time for the perfect autumn ride with the Shetland ponies. The sky is blue, the leaves are golden and Trooper is waiting to come and be ridden, with Batman and Simba, who are in the shade of the old oak tree.

Let’s head to the woods where the leaves are rustling

The pony share members are keen and ready to ride, so let’s head off to the woods for an autumn adventure. Everyone enjoys long autumn rides in the cooler weather – perfect conditions for riding.

Sunset after a busy riding day at The Ranch

The ponies have had a busy autumn day riding with the children, and are now back in the fields, enjoying the juicy grass and the perfect autumn sunset. Well done ponies!
