39"  Sire: Orient V. D. Amstelhof, Dam: Relstart V. Stal Langelo. Beautiful old bloodlines going back to Marshwood. A simply stunning mare of quality, floating action, and flowing hair! 
In the Netherlands this top mare had all 3 Youth Premiums, and was 7 times a First Premium mare. She was 3 times Honorary Champion at Kootwijkerbroek show, and Overall Champion at the 2014 Summer Show, and in the top 3 at the European Championship in Ermelo! 
Wemke is an excellent broodmare. Her foals include a First Premium filly, Carmen Van Het Esveld, ( by Stef Van De Murder), and a filly of Butraqueno Van Stal Brammelo in 2015.
Wemke was bought by us in October 2015 and has been a joy to own. She is excellent to bath/trim, catch, farrier, dentist, load/travel, and in traffic.
She has been lightly, but very successfully shown including the following results :
N.P.S. Area 25 Spring Show: M+M Home Produced Qualifier 1st. M+M Leyhills Small Breed Qualifier: 1st.
Nottingham County: Shetland Class: 1st, Overall Champion and pulled forward into the Final 5 in the Cuddy Qualifier ( actually beating the Sec. B that won at HOYS!!! ). 
Devon County: Shetland Class: 2nd.
Royal Norfolk: Shetland Class: 1st.
Shetland Performance Show: Shetland Class 1st. Home Produced Class: 1st.
Showcase of Champions Show Keysoe: Shetland Class 1st, Champion and Supreme Shetland Champion.
N.P.S. Championships: Shetland Class 2nd. Leyhills Small Breed Final: 6th, ( she was the top placed Shetland, out of 25). 
Pembrokeshire County: Shetland Class: 2nd. 
( all 2nd's were to the beautiful Sharptor Trinity who finished 2nd in the Cuddy at HOYS). 
I am ultimately looking for a permanent breeding home where she will have more lovely foals as she adores foals and is an outstanding broodmare.
Wemke is a lovely person, a great character who adores showing, but she does not like being in a stable on her own on Showgrounds (she is fine at home). 
If you are looking for an outstanding mare, please call or email. Vicky Morgan  (West Wales)

Breed Standard

Height - Registered stock must not exceed 40 inches (102 cm) at three years or under, or 42 inches (107 cm) at four years or over. Ponies are measured from the withers to the ground by measuring stick and on a level stance, preferably concrete should be used

Colour  - Shetland Ponies may be any colour known in horses except spotted

Coat  - The coat changes according to the seasons of the year; a double coat in winter with guard hairs which shed rain and keep the pony’s skin completely dry in the worst weather. By contrast, the summer coat is short and should carry a beautiful silky sheen. At all times the mane and tail hair should be long straight and profuse and the feathering of the fetlocks straight and silky

Head  - The head should be small, carried well and in proportion. Ears should be small and erect, wide set but pointing well forward. Forehead should be broad wtih bold, dark, intelligent eyes. Blue eyes are not acceptable. Muzzle must be broad with nostrils wide open. Teeth and jaw must be correct

Hind Legs -  The thighs should be strong and muscular with well shaped, strong hocks, neither hooky nor too straight. When viewed from behind, the hindlegs should not be set too widely apart, nor should the hocks be turned in

Fore Legs - Should be well placed with sufficient good, flat bone. Strong forearm. Short, balanced cannon bone. Springy pasterns

Feet - Tough, round and well shaped - not short, narrow, contracted or thin

Action - Straight, free action using every joint and tracking-up well

General  - A most salient and essential feature of the Shetland Pony is its general air of vitality (presence), stamina and robustness
