Stop ponies! don’t open your Christmas presents yet

Stop ponies! don’t open your Christmas presents yet – you need to wait till Christmas day to open them.

Let’s join Rosemary as her Shetland pony helpers are preparing the Christmas presents and see what happens.

Which pony wants to open the presents?

Honeybee and Creme Brulee are helping Rosemary pack up the Christmas presents for all the Shetlands. Oh no! the ponies want to peek inside the Christmas presents before Christmas Day. Which pony is the most inquisitive?

Will they spoil the surprise and unwrap their Xmas gifts early?

Best holiday ever for the Shetland ponies

It’s the best holiday ever for the Shetland ponies at The Ranch.  The ponies have finished riding with children for the season and are now enjoying themselves for the winter.

What do ponies do on holiday?

Great question! The ponies are able to rest until we open again on 7 March 2020.  But what do they do all that time and how do they cope with the cold weather?  Do they go abroad, or are they happiest at home?
