Awww he's gorgeous.
Don't worry about the fat, my horse is fat too haha, It'll go away with good dieting or riding as mine does.
Im sorry to hear he's sick, hope he gets better quickly and its nothing serious! Xxx

vet just been couldn't find anything wrong with him, so he is in quaratine for the next 2 weeks, had his tetenas, had an antibiotic jab, has antibiotics for the next 4 days and ontment for his eye.
His temp was fine, had no swollan glands and lungs were clear.

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

Hopefully he will start feeling better soon.

OMG HE is horrible!! You can't keep him so ship him to me please.
Seriously he is a chunky butt, but WOW he is sooooo gorgeous! He had me looking for actual breed standards and he is so close to perfect, from what I can see. Congrats on the cutie

May I steal a copy of the first shot? I have a friend who owns minis and I'd LOVE to show her the difference in her dwarfs and an actual Shetland. Besides he could then become my wallpaper;)

Not quite sure of your meaning here. Does your friend actually breed dwarfs or Minis? Also, in the US and across the world, Shetlands come in various types and sizes.

LOL, but this guy is a 'proper' Shetland, not one that has been messed about with and changed to something that is no longer recognizable as a little power house, who can work like a big horse and live on the sparse fare that a crofters pony would have had for them.

He's gorgeous! He looks a lot like a Shetland at my work, another proper Thelwell type but the head on your boy is outstanding.

sure you can have the pic but will try to get better ones, he is as close to perfect as I can find (not including his weight) a true shetland from shetland type and he isn't evan from shetland. It was really hard to find a stallion his height with out being all leg and he was really cheap my mum throught she would have to pay £1000s but he was only £450 ($720 roughly)
