This is a very honest advert..

Stunning friendly homebred Shetland x cob colt. Blue roan and white in summer and bay and white in his winter wollies! He won’t ever fade in colour like most blue and whites do. Definitely well marked enough to show and do well in coloured classes.

A chunky well put together chap who has a very loving and kind nature. He loves being groomed and will stand for hours to be brushed!

Quiet and easy to do in the stable. Comes to call in the field. Never bitten/kicked or anything unpleasant, he’s a kind boy.

He is a totally unspoilt blank canvas and has never been broken due to my lack of time with working full time hours. Someone can make him into their own. He has so much potential to make a really super ride/drive/pc/allrounder for the future once broken. He would also carry a small adult.

He can be wary/suspicious of new people/situations such as the vet and just needs a calm and reassuring person to say it’s fine! I love this pony and will only let him go to a capable home who can give him the one to one time he deserves to bring out his full potential, he will go far...

He’s totally wasted with me working full time sadly and I need to do the right thing for him and let him go and find a super home who would give him a job...

Home is more important than price and price reflects that I’m sure his new home will want to geld him.

Genuine enquires only please. He won’t suit a 2/3 year old grandchild/child to ride now as he’s currently unbroken, in 6 months time with work then yes he will be a super riding pony (I’ve been asked this question a few times!!)

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
