    My first home bred foal in his new home

    ON the 29th of September 2010 our lovely mare Molly finally arrived in Shetland after a months wait due to bad weather meaning the ferry wasn't taking ponies or horses.


    She was in foal to an unregistered Fell stallion (Wouldn't have been our choice in stallion for her)



    She arrived very tired and quite shaken as it was a long journey from North Yorkshire up to Shetland and a 200 mile ferry crossing in the middle of the autumn equinox isn't the nicest at best of time. She took a while to settle in and the shetlands were terrified of her as most have never seen or been near anything bigger than a shetland pony and she has never been around shetland ponies herself before.
    (This photo is from last year but depicts the same kind of thing)


    So after months of waiting for this belly to burst.


    On the 3rd of April 2011 Prince was born. Molly being handled very little before we got her and us only having her a couple of months didn't trust us to get near the foal so for couple of days we thought our little colt foal was a filly foal called Bella. A fact my family have never let me live down.



    He was a stunning foal and always very cheeky.




    He was also a stunning yearling, I don't think he ever really had a lanky ugly faze.





    Fast forwards a year we had to make the incredibly hard decision to sell him as he was wasted here as none of us ride much at all and none of us are anywhere near the level of riding to back a horse. Thankfully he was sold to someone I know as I have bought a pony off of her and she is in Shetland so I can visit him. She has had him for a couple of months now and it is safe to say he is looking amazing and behaving amazingly so safe to say I am very proud of him.
