Shetland ponies originate from the Shetland Isles in Scotland and can be traced back to the Bronze Age.
On average they stand up to 42” at the shoulders. They have a thick furry coat, mane and tail to keep them warm in the winter. Although they have short legs and a small head, they are muscular and compact for their size.
These little ponies can live to be 30 years of age or older. The world record for oldest Shetland pony is 56 years.
At Maplewood Farm, we feed our Shetland ponies hay and pellet feed. The pellet feed is a compact mixture of grains, fibre and additional nutrients and supplements.
These ponies were originally used for pulling carts and ploughing land. Today, they are commonly ridden
