So adorable and looks like he's about ready for a winter... I like a little extra tub when transporting long distances, especially before winter. It makes them a little hardier and gives them more ability to survive the unexpected :)

I don't know much about Shetlands, but judging by the looks of your other ponies, and by the pictures of him in show, he's not grossly over weight like other people were saying. Maybe a little over weight, but he looks like he's supposed to be built stocky like that... Right?

He's so cute! I want to smooch his sweet fuzzy nose!

I know this is an old thread but I thought it was the best place to update you all on Ricky. But first let me apologise for my terrible spelling, I have just reread through all the pages and I have to say I am embarrassed by my terrible spelling and grammar.

Now onto Ricky, as I wrote before he had gotten ill, the vet that came out had no idea what was wrong with him and didn't run any tests or anything but we think it could have been flu, he also go antibiotics just in case, so was in quarantine for 6 weeks, then he went back out for a couple of months, we reckon the flu has reduced he immune system as he then got mud fever that was infected and spread internally, between that and having to have both back legs completely clipped he was kept stabled for two months. He then ran with two of my fillies for foals at the beginning of April 2013. In June he got into a fight with one of the boys he was sharing a field with and ripped his eye lid very badly which would have healed fine and he would have been back out in a couple of weeks, but the vet messed up one of the stitches knotting it on the inside of the eyelid so it rubbed on his eye ball and caused and ulcer which covered most of his eye, over the next two months almost a 1000 later he got his sight back which he lost due to the ulcer, kept his eye which at first the vets wasn't sure about at first and is only left with very little eye lashes and a slight white scar on his pupil. But he has now got serious trust issues and no longer can he stand men, which we are working on, he can now tell a vet from a mile off. Considering the shows are in August and he was still stuck in the stable it goes with out saying we sadly missed the shows this year but at least we have a healthy pony. Due to him not getting along with the other entire males we had to keep him by himself from August to October which was making him a tad bit grumpy, so we bought a colt foal to keep him company who will be gelded early next year. Ricky loves this colt and is very protective towards him. We also backed him and started work in harness but due to his trust issues to now scares him to do either but this also is getting worked on.

Now onto photos which I am not short off.
