A Morning with Shetland Ponies

When someone asks you to go and help them look at Shetland pony foals with them, well, you don’t say no, do you?

And if you get to see some beautiful mares as well, you don’t avert your gaze.  That would be just plain rude.

So I spent a lovely morning wandering around Bergli Stud looking at all their Shetland ponies – both standard and miniature.

Obviously I took my camera.

I would’ve been a fool not to.

There were just so many beautiful ponies to photograph.

Lots of foals and their Mums everywhere.

The struggle is real!

It was Shetland pony heaven.

And I am very happy to be part of it.

I dished out nose-kisseys to anyone who wanted.

And adorable little “peoples” came up for a chat.

Some were braver than others.

And some just couldn’t be bothered.

I could’ve sat down with the foals and spent all day with them.  Über cuteness overload.

As I said, Shetland pony heaven.

    One should always say yes to an invitation like you got. For those of us not in the know, what is the size difference between a Shetland Pony and a Miniature? (Those foals and mares are beautiful).

      Miniatures are 34” and under to the withers
      Standards are over 34” up to 10.2 h.h (42”).

      (Newt is 28″ – just sayin’)
