CORVEVALLEY ENID a lovely little mare with stunning confirmation and movement.

Currently handled by children, happy to be pampered and brushed. Wormed and foot trimmed up to date. Starting to accept the bridle and saddle. Happy to be rugged. Easy to catch with food. Potential for in hand showing, family friend or broodmare.

Enid likes the company of others but wants to dominate the other minature pony so I feel she would thrive with bigger ponies or as a companion or in a large herd of minatures. This is the only reason that she is offered for sale. It is a difficult decision so no time wasters please.

Her unusual colour , exceptional breeding and beautiful confirmation make her an exciting prospect and a rare opportunity for someone.

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
