Your guy is a great example of an "old type Shetland." So that is why I asked about copying the picture. I'd love to show her a prime example. I am trying my best to talk her out of breeding the dwarf for to many reasons to list.

Edit: I asked about the first picture because it shows his muzzle really well, shows his sturdy little legs to be straight and true, his belly doesn't nearly drag the ground, and he isn't longer by twice what he is tall. Her dwarf is parrot mouthed ( I think that's the term for the over shot muzzle) crooked little short legs, and her body is WAY to long for her legs. Her belly almost touches the ground.

I once owned a Shetland mare that was typical of the UK Shetlands. Great conformation. A bit stout which I had to be mindful off. Wonderful disposition. When we trail rode she just came along. When we were cantering she'd come between two horses then cut in front of one and stop. My horse sure did his best to avoid her but it sometimes involved some fancy manoevers.

I agree. They are absolutely adorable.

I can see Ricky has lost some weight. However, with your winters, he will need some extra fat so I doubt he'll need to lose any more.

They are all looking lovely and seem to be getting along well. Are the mares already bred?

I love your countryside. So wild and beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
