Hello all,

I have recently moved my two horses onto my own land to cut down on livery expenses!

However now when i take one away to a competition or even for a ride around my cross country jumps (that are in the same field!!)the other goes mad and gets very stressed!

I have bee looking to get a pair of mini shetlands to keep them company and also to break to harness and have abit of fun with? Does anybody know much about them? Temperament wise etc??

well..... i heard that shaetlands have a fantastic character!!!! :D but they also have the little cheeky side of them! but either way, sound perfect for what you want them for!!!!

I have a friend who owns about 12 of them! I think they're super little equines! All hers have wonderful temperaments, no nipping etc. They all get on really well too, she has them in a large field with 2 tb and a Shire! :D

I cant see you having any trouble with them.

Well my neighbor, has to miniture stallions, they are soooooooooooo cute! And are very fun to play and mess around with. Their temperments aren't like crazy and hyper all the time, there usually pretty calm and loveale. =]]] I hope you get some!

Hi Elz, I spoke with my friend, she normally buys her little ones from a breeder is Leicester. They have a website They're lovely people that run the stud. Thats what my friend says anyway! lol

Once before she's bought from another stud in Berkshire (think I've spelt it right)
