He is 40" when we messured him although he was sold to be 38"
Because he has an extra 2" of fat when measured the last time. That looks so unheathly

I love his deep colour and he has such a lovely little face.

What is his name?

I'm not familiar with showing shetlands so how are you going to do it? As in, what classes do they go into and how do you dress yourself for it?

What a cutie.

Sometimes I wrestle with my demons. Sometimes we just snuggle.

All the shows where I live have shetland classes for each age and gender as I live in shetlands. In the rest of britain they are mosty shoen in mountain and moorland classes, heavy horses and nativr and they can be shown in coloured claasses for coours ponies and stallion classes ect as well as the turn out classes.
The clothes vairy between the shows, for all the shoes I have shown f every one wears what the want. The mares, fillies, yearling colts and foals are all shjown on leather head collars and the stallon and 2,3 year old colts wear bridles and stallion bits.

and on another note for all the fat coments yes I am awear he is fat, but I have only had him three days so unless there is some mirricle diet I don't know about I haven't be able to control his wieght and he is on a diet now that we have him

Never judge a book by their cover, also never judge a pony by their height. They tend to be big personalities in little packages.

For our American audience, just as a reference point, here is Ricky in show trim



So while he definitely needs Weight Watchers through the winter, remember that he is a completely different build than the Shetlands over here

Good luck in getting him back into shape is he broke to ride? some exercise would sure help him.

I just wanted to add my first equin was a shetland her name was Tammyjoe and she was the perfect first horse. My mom and dad got her for me for my 7th birthday she was $250.00 with saddle and bridle.

shetlands are lovely wouldn't give them up for the world, took me months to find a stallion as good as him his is one of the best in the breed so I have been told mutipule times. My first ponies were two unhandle yearling colts my dad got for my mums anerversery about four months after we moved on to our croft, they were the first live stock we had. I was thirtheen then and very scared of all things equine yet I was put in charge of looking after them and they soon became huge characters and were very cheaky. They are now a very cheacky yet tiny littlel strawberry roan 4 year old colt waiting to pass his stallion test with flying colours and then when the market improved be sold after he has proven himself in the show rings as we know he will (Grindins shooting star) and a very grumpy at times loves everyone but me grey gelding who was the first pony I ever broke to ride but is to small so is just sat in the field getting fat as shetlands do (Braebister Brootis). \i don't think I could thinks of a better breed to start wiht and can't to bred from my lovely new guy next year i hope my fillies love him as much as I do.

He's sure a cute little guy! Once he's all fit and trim, he'll be gorgeous. I love his forelock!
