Hamish, Teddy and Duncan came to us as a ready made herd when their owner’s circumstances changed. They had grown up together having initially been rescued from a truly awful breeding site, and they needed to stay together. Mane Chance seemed the perfect choice and we have been delighted to welcome them. Hamish is the most timid of the three, but also the eldest and so their little leader. Despite the fact that they have had good care for nine years prior to coming to us, Hamish, being a year older than the other two, has memories of the time when life was not so good. He was the most untrusting pony and flinched at any sudden movement, and was notoriously hesitant with head collars as they involve touching him near his ears, something he definitely didn’t like. But in a short time, he has clearly looked around him and seen contented buddies in the other Shetlands as that behaviour has almost completely disappeared within a few months. He is now realising that if he puts a spurt of speed on when humans approach, he stands a chance of being first or second in line for a cuddle and a scratch – Teddy being his nearest rival for speed!
