When Teddy arrived with us last year, he clearly showed signs of being very happy to be joining a larger herd.  He came to Mane Chance with Hamish and Duncan and had the lowest position of the three.  Hamish was most definitely the boss and Teddy understood that, but it was still a little sad to see him occasionally pushed off hay nets and away from the other two, a lone figure.  But as the integration with our herd increased, so did Teddy’s confidence as he was no longer the odd one out – instead, he had others to turn to and spend time with although we think he has rather taken a fancy to Thelma as it is often her!

But if Teddy is bottom of the pile with the other Shetlands, he is definitely top of the charts with our visitors.  He is such a gentle horse that never seems to run out of kindness and generosity.  He is always up for a cuddle and scratch, he loves to be walked and groomed and he just is, well, adorable. Our ‘Share a Shettie’ programme is where Teddy shines; when adults and children come to spend a day looking after our herd of little ones, super Teddy is always a huge part of this day.  He steps forward to volunteer himself and is so patient with little people and happy to be groomed and walked by them, even if they are novices – he almost wills the children working with ponies for the first time to succeed by being so gentle and responsive with them.
