A friend asked me to find her two miniature Shetland ponies.
So I did – meet Festus and Ulysses on Day 1 at their fabulous new home.
They are gorgeous wonderful little fluff-balls who met for the first time the day before.
Obviously two peas in a pod to look at and I am struggling trying to identify who is who (sorry if I get their photos wrong – it was difficult).
Festus has the white paint/sale mark on his bottom. He came through the Marts (sales). I had to bid for him on my friend’s behalf, which I will admit I was nervous about but I did it, and we had the winning bid. Phew!
I am reliably informed by his new mum that the colt with a white mark on his forehead is Ulysses. He is the out-going, inquisitive one.
Festus is the more quiet of the two little squirts. He is a very sweet natured little chap who I think will soon be Ruling the World, like they do. One word – Newt! It doesn’t take long.
Both chaps love peoples.
Which is, of course, perfect.
My friend already has two Icelandic horses (a mare and a gelding) in her family. The mare is not a huge fan of the new arrivals and they are in separate but adjoining fields.
Today’s update – “they both come running when they are called”. Darling little bebbies.
So mission accomplished. This could not be a more perfect home for two little Shetland ponies. Thank you for the task. Ask me any time. I love a happy ending.
