Join Rosemary on Winter Watch at Shetland Pony Club this week.
It’s really cold at the ranch and Rosemary is checking on the Shetland ponies in the cold winter sunshine to make sure that all the ponies are healthy.
Frosted grass can lead to tummy aches for the Shetland ponies so they need to be watched carefully. Join Rosemary on her daily pony check and see what’s happening on the ponies’ winter holiday.
Rosemary has another important job to do to look after the ponies. She must break the ice on their water trough and remove the broken pieces to prevent them freezing over. Ponies cannot break the ice themselves so it’s important to do this every day in freezing weather to make sure that they always have water to drink.
The ponies are not the only animals to be enjoying the morning sunshine. What other wildlife are also wintering at the ranch?
