There's a reason Shetlands are known as Sh*tlands, my boss was horrified when she found out we had a new Shetland. He's a bit of a bugger though very cute. He recently got a kid off so while the instructor sorted out the child one of the others held him and made a comment along of the lines of "I think he's a bit horny," so to prove her right he mounted her! He is a gelding. He hops away from you if you pick his feet out even if you have someone else holding another leg.
Welshies though there's a reason the little ones are called Section As, it's A for attitude! We have a little Welsh type who's in a grackle not because he's strong or anything, he's excellent with the kids but he's horrible to leaders so he's in a grackle to stop him biting leaders. One of our taller ones is a very special boy, the lights are on and no one is home and the lights are only half on at that but he has this habit of curling round you when you lead him and has managed to trip several leaders up.
But you know what I do love my ponies. My favourite ones at work are ponies and I am seriously debating making an offer on one when I leave even though it wouldn't really be a good thing but I love him so much.
Eagles may soar but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.
