share good reasons not to? Before I steal one from saggy

I can't help, I have Shetland and just had the baby to ride him!

Haven't really got a spare anymore! Only the old girl, and she isn't actually a shitland, actually a mini British spotted! You'll never prise Ducky from Catey, and lou's tinkerbell is hopefully in foal!

There are no good reasons, shetlands are fab not that I'm biased by our gorgeous darling girl. smile

When Im finally free of bloody annoying welshies, Im going to breed black traditional shetlands. I love ours, she rocks

she looks very posh there!

I might look for one on loan, there must be lots around?

Yes, get a lovely little shetland, and take up driving (sideways, on skis at a zillion mph, obviously) grin

oh I'd love to do that! Although my imaginary shetland is something grandson can brush and sit on more easily than the horse. He loves it but its a terrifyingly long way down for such a tiny person.

Nope sorry, can't think of a single reason not to! I don't know much about Shetlands, but I'd imagine they are very low maintainance, and you'd barely know you'd got it! Your grandson would love it! smile

you lot are no help!

if we got a gelding he could live out with the others and we really wouldn't feel the strain of extra work would we? Are there ever rescue Shetlands?

We are in IP14 if any of you know of any needing a home!

I am trying to persuade my dh that our 9mth daughter needs a shetland ....... he isnt embracing the idea ......... but I do wonder if one arrived how long it would take before he noticed smile
good luck with your pony hunt

I want a Shetland too! DS currently 6 weeks so just a tiny bit small at the moment but give me a few months and I will have one regardless of what DH says! In fact my mum asked us on day 2 of his being born when were we getting the pony!!!

Very clever but very naughty one on our yard. They were talking about selling her. Their dd is 9 and wants something easier!!!
