Pippin is a super kind friendly little chap.
I rescued him when he was a tiny 5 month old colt who had been separated from his Mother to be sold in a horse sale.
He was quite traumatised and poorly due to this and had to be nursed back to health.
I could actually carry him in my arms at that stage.
He has grown into the sturdy healthy boy he is today!
He has been broken in for lead rein and has carried my grandchildren when they were small toddlers although not recently as they are now too big for him.

I am sadly having to rehome this pony due to my increasing age and health problems. He is to be rehomed with his best friend Teddy. My husband and myself are having to sell our small holding as we are struggling to manage it anymore.

  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    Pippin needs someone to love and care for him along side his best friend Teddy. He would require time to settle in to a new home and some re education before he could be used again for lead rein as he hasn’t had any little rider for a couple of years.

 Shetland pony
 
Shetland Ponies are hardy and strong, in part because the breed developed in the harsh conditions of the Shetland Isles. In appearance, Shetlands have a small head, sometimes with a dished face, wide spaced eyes and small and alert ears. The original breed has a short, muscular neck, compact, stocky bodies, and short, strong legs and a shorter than normal cannon bone in relation to their size. A short broad back and deep girth are universal characteristics as is a springy stride. Shetlands have long thick manes and tails and a dense double winter coat to withstand harsh weather.
