Wink Shetland, free to good home!

Not really guys , I need a rant!

I have a little cheeky Shetland named zorro. And I have had it with him! He pullled down my god **** dressage arena the other day and everytimw I put it back up, he *jumps* it (it's in his paddock lol) and he likes to play 'let's steal the huge thoroughbreds hay in a hope to get kicked' and annoys the girls constantly! Ugh! Little ponies are so naughty! He also likes to stop when your riding him and not move, no matter how hard you kick! And it doesn stop there!

Anyone have a cheeky Shetland? Share your ponies antics!

Oh from what I understand most ponies are cheeky little devils. The one at my barn is a cute little guy but not a piece of cake when being ridden. And then there are all those youtube videos where you see kids at shows and their ponies just stop and throw them off head first. BUt you gotta love em! ;)

Butterfly is a devil. She'll be perfect then BOOM she'll do a quick turn and bolt.....and if that doesn't get you off of her she'll start bucking! Oh and don't forget, she'll rear if you walk her away from the gate. -_- she's so evil but I love her!

We have a saying at our barn, "The smaller the pony, the closer to Hell."

We have a miniature gelding that we bought from a kill pen, he's slowly getting over his fear of people and now his personality is beginning to shine through. His paddocks buddies are other horses that are 16-17hh and he bosses them around like he's not aware that he's only about 8hh. He has such a temper! He's still difficult to catch, and seems to always know when he's about to get his feet trimmed. Although, now he's beginning to warm up to us, and will nicker whenever he sees us come to the gate even though he's still too cautious to come over. He's also an escape artist, and he's not afraid to squeeze between the electric tape fence.

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.
