Carrying on from yesterday’s photos….
After seeing the beautiful black standard Shetland ponies, we went on to visit the miniatures at Bergli Stud.
They were very pleased to see us.
Bjørn, their owner and breeder, had brought some bales of hay for them.
The ponies feigned vague enthusiasm for a short while.
And then quickly lost interest, preferring to come over to say hello (and to be photographed).
They are all very photogenic.
(I love this one being photobombed!)
Such beautiful little ladies.
Some are pregnant and some are not.
We played the usual guessing game that is very popular this time of year –
Bjørn – do you think she is pregnant?
Me – I dunno, er, could be…….
They all sported wonderful hair styles.
with lots of character.
Miniature Shetland ponies have a unique charm all of their own. I adore them. I love the way they think. They are very different, character-wise, to their standard versions.
Tomorrow, I spend the day in hospital having epidural steroid injections. I am not looking forward to it but it is a necessary evil. I know I won’t have the strength to write the blog so I have asked Nick Miners to step into the breach.
