Best Shetland Pony Filly Foal in Shetland 2016

Meet Bergli Gloria.


She is the best Shetland pony filly foal in Shetland 2016 and that is a seriously nice silver rose bowl that she has won.


This is her mother – Bluemull Roseblossom.


You may remember her.  This was Roseblossom in March 2015.  She was the mare we nursed through hyperlipaemia.


During her horrible illness, she aborted her foal (a strong colt) which physically probably saved her life but mentally hit her hard.  Afterwards, after careful thought and consideration, she ran with Wulfert v.d. groote woerd 528 009 05 1119553 (Waffle’s Sire).

This spring she had a beautiful filly foal.  She was thrilled.  Everything was back to normal. 


Darling little Gloria.


And if anyone says to you that Shetland ponies just can’t move like bigger horses and ponies,  well then……


…. perhaps refer them to watch Gloria in action.


This little lady floats with ears pricked and a smile on her face!


Stunning, absolutely stunning.


So effortless.


Serious wow!


I could watch her all day.

And she has the most delicious little canter too.


Roseblossom deserves to be happy after all the hell that she went through last year and she is.  She has the most beautiful, talented little girl.


The best in Shetland.


I am not surprised.  The trophy is well deserved.


On the way home, Foula was looking magical.


I never pass up an opportunity to take photos of Foula when it is looking special.

    This makes me sooooooooo happy! What a darling little filly, and Roseblossom looks so pleased! The photo of her with her foal melts my heart, especially knowing what she went through last year. Kudos to all who helped pull her through! Gloria indeed!

    Wonderful! Always glad to hear good news!
    I’m glad that the mom is doing well and congratulations to all who helped mom and filly!
    I only wish you had taken some short videos of the trot and canter so we could all admire in unison!

      I will see what I can do. I find it very hard to either take a film or to take a photo. I can’t do both. I get muddled in my head of what I am looking for and which button to press!
