Mr Smith is one of our three miniature Shetlands and was rescued from a dealer’s yard. He has a blue eye and a brown eye which is always a talking point with visitors! With the arrival of some new shetlands, some of the older hands looked to him for guidance on the acceptance of the new faces. But Mr Smith is such a kind horse at heart and when he had set a few boundaries with the newbies, they had started to respond, he gave them time and patience. It seems that Mr Smith was getting a little tired of this protector role and he has recently taken the chance to hand the leader baton to Grimbo now.  We don’t see anything concerning in this; just a part of the changing dynamic that new horses bring.  What is important is that the herd is settled and that they are all happy and well.  Mr Smith certainly seems to be – he continues to lead the way with working with our visitors.  

Mr Smith is always a favourite – his different coloured eyes always attracts the attention from afar, but it’s when you get to know his personality and understand his warmth and generosity that he truly comes into his own.  He is fully integrated with our Share a Shettie and Chance2Be programmes. We know that the horse human connection can be so rewarding and he shows us that time and time again.  He is such a good ambassador for our charity and we are terribly proud of him, as we hope you are too!
