Meet our pair of lovely Shetland ponies, bandit and Polly who are looking for their forever home as companions! 

Polly is an 11 year old mare, who is a very kind pony. Polly is excellent for the farrier, to groom and is good to catch. 

Bandit is a 14 year old gelding who is quite shy and nervous, He can be reluctant to catch but once caught he is good to groom/ handle including for the farrier and vet. Sudden movement and loud noises can scare him so he needs someone patient. Bandit suffers from sweet itch in the summer months. 

Both Shetlands have lived in a mixed herd so are fine with mares or geldings. They are currently living out 24/7 with a field shelter but equally they are fine to be stabled occasionally too. 

This home would need to be able to restrict grazing in the summer to prevent the ponies becoming obese.
