About 25 years ago, a known condition, hyperlipaemia seemed to strike Shetland ponies, mostly minis, with a vengeance. Theories abounded from the veterinary profession as to its causes, amongst them initially, was the theory that in mid - late term pregnancy, a mare switched her metabolism to the growing foal, in effect starving herself. This had some credence as the oft aborted foal, which sometimes saved the mare's life, were invariably  'plump' and rather 'well done' for that stage in pregnancy. Other theories included, overfat mares, worm damage, stress, insufficient food for mare and so on. A simple blood test would diagnose the condition with fat separating from the blood often more than 50% of the sample stood in a test tube inside a few minutes. Speaking personally, and I'm sure for many of you, lack of worming would not be a cause, nor lack of feed, although some mares may have been a tad overweight, nothing excessive. Every winter we heard terrible news of this dread killer condition, yet I cannot remember the last case I heard of. Have you? CONTACT us

Congratulation  to the organisers of the Area 12 NPS show held at Kings Equestrian Centre Bromyard.
Competing here for the first time, it was a friendly well organised show, even changing the rings to keep things running smoothly. Snelsmore ponies had a great day winning all three Miniature classes and Championships. 
Snelsmore Lalique  went on to represent the breed in the Mountain and Moorland Championship later in the day and was Reserve Champion.   


Everybody keeps telling me how well we (cranford) do/have done with our ridden ponies. It’s true, we have enjoyed success, largely to do with good suitable ponies, and some good jockeys and keen parents. In the main our publicity comes not from Facebook as you might think, in fact I’m disinclined to use social media for self promotion of results, but the results page on Shetland-pony.com. we have got involved in riding the ponies we have bred for our own entertainment and enjoyment, but have always been aware of the fact that all of us competing in affiliated events are hopefully doing breed perception good and that applies to in hand as well.

It’s true the breed society’s scheme compiles results annually, but there is no running results scheme, understandably, it is very time consuming and time is money, hence there is a nominal fee for the Shetland-pony.com scheme and with the help of sponsors, you could well collect a quality memento at the end of the season.

COME ON, LEAD REIN, FIRST RIDDEN AND OPEN AND WHP EXHIBITORS. Enter before 7th May and I will hold the price. It’s not about us, it’s about all of you too.  www.shetland-pony.com/2016 SAME OFFER (closing date)TO IN HAND APPLIES AS WELL.


SHETLAND PONY STUD-BOOK SOCIETY

DRIVEN PERFORMANCE AWARDS SCHEME

Following the amazingly successful training day held last January with Elinor Bosanquet, the SPS-BS Driven Performance Awards Scheme held the 2016 training event at Bennington Carriages with Sue Mart..

 Nine turnouts had registered to attend the day and all had sent back forms with their aspirations.  Everyone wished to improve in different ways and some of the subjects covered included: fitting show harness and putting to a show gig for the first time for that particular pony, improving shows, dressage, advice about minor issues, harness fitting, advice to a pony who was about to start a career with RDA.  Possibly the highlight of the day was seeing Andrew and Hannah Britland putting their lovely home-bred pony put to and driving round the school  - everyone with smiles on their faces.

It was lovely to see several home-bred ponies there.  As I say so many times, a happy Shetland is a working Shetland and it is days like these who give these ponies the opportunity to go on into a happy and  safe driving career.

A massive “thank you” to Sue and her team at Bennington.  She was truly the star of the day which started well before 9.00 a.m. And was not to finish before 4.00 p.m.  The feedback has been excellent and everyone left feeling they had gained both knowledge and encouragement.

The Scheme welcomes all registered Shetland ponies – there is a driving weekend planned for 22/24 July as well as the Annual Luncheon in January.  A further training day will be held in 2017. Any information contact Willowe Keeley 01902 372238

We all love the internet, but scammers get ever more clever. ANOTHER  cautionary tale. BEWARE.
When my pc died from old age I purchased a new one complete with Windows 10 but no Microsoft Office. So bought a new version Office 2016.
Great I thought. When I was adding it to the new pc, I put in the new Office product key number and up came the error box, complete with error code and number to ring to get the solution for the error, so I did it all again, up came the error box again, third time lucky I thought bot no such luck, error box, code and the phone number. Really getting a bit annoyed at this stage – new laptop – new programme and errors already.
So I rang the number thinking it was a Microsoft number, but no it turned out to be a full on scam. It all sounded plausible, he got onto the laptop (how did they do that) and showed me all the things that were ‘wrong and disabled’ I even said it was band new and could not have so many problems, but he said by trying to install the office programme I got a Trojan from the internet. So not being a IT freak, I went with it. Paid over to him 150 by electronic transfer. His ‘technician’ then spent three hours saying he was repairing the problem but there was ‘no connectivity’! Eventually he rang back and said it was fixed and ready to go.
Great but no it was a mess! Now I started to think, this is not right, have I been scammed. So I took the laptop to a computer shop in the city and they confirmed I had been scammed. They showed me on another laptop exactly what the scammers had shown me and it is on ALL pc’s as part of the drive programming. It cost another 50 to get it put right and that was only done by completely deleting ALL data on the drive and starting again on a clean and empty drive, installing ALL the programmes required to make a pc work. Thankfully it now works perfectly.

Never again will I respond to such an error notice but will seek professional help, so beware this scammer was very convincing.

Kindest regards. R.B.
IF YOU ARE unsure regarding any offer to 'click' on a link, or open an attachment on an email, DON'T DO IT!! There is no legal requirement for you to do so. If you are overwhelmed by a desire to 'click' feel free to run it past me, especially if it is unsolicited from someone you think you know. GH MICROSOFT WILL NEVER CONTACT YOU BY PHONE OR EMAIL.


I know you do not put wanted adverts on your site but we are looking for a capable l/r and f/r jockey for our Shetland to do county level and r/I qualifiers. We are based in Suffolk and wondered if you would be able to put this on your site. Best site for shetties so thought we may get response from your site. We do not require any financial help just a capable jockey. Thank you for your time. Sonia.

Am happy to place this kind of 'wanted' notice. GH. 

I think the Crunchster is gonna be ok.GH

Crunchy has just arrived and there's great excitement here. He is ADORABLE and so calm and settled already. Little Millie couldn't wait to take him off the lorry. Pictures attached, for your news if you'd like. Her big brother is called George.





Spring is here, and a lovely filly starts the season at Merrylees.

Bang on time, Gillie's huge Oakley lorry, drew up to take Crunchy to his new life in Aberdeen.
Nothing is forever, and reluctantly, but sensibly, 'the Crunchster' with whom we have had such fun over the years goes to Scotland where all his talents will be utilised. Jack Dale, who has enjoyed such success with Crunchy will race 'Fandabbydosey' in what will be his last year in Shetland ponies. We have a few in store for Jack's sister, Lucie in two years time.

The Wessex Shetland Pony group held its first show of 2016 on Sunday March 20th. The weather had been very cold and windy leading up to the day and true to form was cold again on the day, luckily we were inside. We all managed to make it through the day and complete the show before the temperature dropped again, so well done to everyone who attended. 

Our two judges who braved the cold were Mrs C Seipp who judged the miniature ponies and Mr N True who judged the standard ponies. These are the principal results of the day.

The smile says it all .JB.

 


With the fall in demand for all equines over the last 7 or 8 years breeders have cut back on production. Many Shetland breeders have stopped altogether, due to retirement which in economic terms can be described as 'natural wastage'. let's hope those who continue to breed have been discerning, and bred only from their best, because only the best will find homes. Hopefully, foals of any breeds, not just Shetlands, won’t be seen 'for sale' on facebook before they are even dry.


Warning................you may get a telephone call from a person purporting to be raising funds for disabled children and asking you to take space/subscribe to a magazine promoting your ponies. DO NOT GET INVOLVED, IT IS A SCAM USING THE NATURAL HUMAN   DESIRE TO HELP CHILDREN. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. JUST HANG UP.

Trophy arrived today for the Downs Group Spring show at Buckhurst Park, the show in memory of the lovely JUDY HAWKINS is on 24th April 2016 , the cup , all rosettes and prizes were purchased with the donations from Judy's funeral , very kindly given to our group by husband Mark, daughter Vicki and grandchildren , Holly, Emily and Ralph.

The Supreme Champion and handler / rider will be engraved on the cup.

Schedules available soon. J.J.

One of the UK's top shows has a new trophy for geldings.
Could you please put a note in your column with regard to the Royal Norfolk show date being 30th June which is the Thursday reference SHETLAND GELDING CLASS as the show has kindly consented to accept the Claylands Trophy especially for the geldings, be they standard, miniature, black, chestnut or broken coloured.  The trophy will be similar to those already presented to shows such as the Royal Cornwall, Lincolnshire etc, the idea being to continue our quest to encourage people to ENTER geldings, have their own class and get recognised for what they are.....a most useful pony for the children onwards. There is always a good turnout for the above show of geldings, so the more the merrier. See you there and enjoy your days showing.

Just to put the record straight!
Emma,
thank you for sending this. HOWEVER for the 3 years at least before the branch at HOVE closed, i used to hand deliver the cheques received to them. in those days everyone paid by cheque. So you can add a minimum of a further 3000 to our total, i guess they just added it into their 'take' at that branch. on the grand scale of things, acknowledgement not that important, that you have received it is the thing.

Thank you ever so much for your ongoing support for Macmillan Cancer Support. 98% of the money that we raise comes from the general public, so it is only through the generosity of supporters like you that we are able to continue reaching those who need us.

 

Thank you for sending over the link to your Christmas Appeal, its so lovely to see all the pictures and how the money was raised. I can see to date that the Shetland Pony Owners & Breeders have raised an amazing 7,551.00. Just to put this into perspective 7,000 could pay for an e-learning programme for healthcare professionals and carers that helps them direct people affected by cancer to financial support they may be entitled to and need. On behalf of everyone here at Macmillan, thank you very much for your ongoing support.

 

By 2030, it’s thought that there will be four million people living with cancer. Macmillan needs to raise more money than ever before so we can reach more people affected by cancer and provide them with the services they need. Without the support of people like you, we wouldn’t be able to do that.

 

We simply couldn’t do what we do without dedicated fundraisers and we can’t thank you enough for being a part of our team.

 

Best wishes,

Editorial by Gerry Hart.
Thirty odd years ago when I joined the Shetland pony breed Society
, it was an altogether different animal to the Society we have today. In those days a prospective member had to be proposed and seconded before membership was granted. That was enough of a sweat even though I’m not sure if an application could be ‘blackballed’. Probably not, but speaking personally as someone and probably most new members at that time who were determined to stay the course, I knew much of the heritage of the Shetland pony and its Stud Book and the need of all members to step up at some point to ensure those traditions and breed standards were maintained, and not least the history of the Society. E.g I knew off by heart the first 2 generations of stallions from John and Barbara Church’s ‘Nashes’ Stud, mainly Wells, as well as those of other local studs.

For those who had maintained and supported the Society in a somewhat ‘clubby’ tradition before the explosion of membership and subsequent increase in pony breeding, to perceive us as a load of ‘Johnny  come latelys’ who joined in their droves in the late 80’s and 90’s. With the long since mantra ‘miniatures will ruin the breed’ laid to rest along with an artificially promoted dislike between the Scots and the English. The Scots claiming the breed as theirs, and the English who had bought their foundation breeding stock from the Scots, and were and continue to provide by sheer weight of numbers, the largest part of the Society’s income, were seen as a threat ‘wishing to take the breed society, and its office, South, into England. Nothing could have been further from the truth as I cautioned the few that would be revolutionary. 'Like marriage, starting a stud book was not something to be entered lightly', provenance, long term commitment and the stature such achievements give the Society credibility.

Over the first twenty odd years of my membership, stallion inspection was always a bone of contention and seemed to be the main topic for Council meetings, that and judge selection. It put ‘power’ into the hands of a few people on Council, who, at least in those days had to be nominated and seconded by members and usually subject to a vote by the membership if more candidates were forward than required for places on Council. In any organisation where volunteers are required to manage said organisation, I fear with the paucity of applicants in recent years we have used up those who are so minded. We have been relatively lucky with those who have been cajoled, persuaded or whatever to serve on Council in recent years, but I think we can be justifiably concerned as to where Society Council members will come from in the medium and long term. Too many of today’s breeders do not know, let alone recite, the breeding of their ponies

Having said that, with the monster that was stallion inspection long gone, the breed standard set in stone and the rules for entry in the stud book clear, any queries should be definitively answered by the Secretary as they once were in former Secretary, Duncan Patterson’s time, and that should leave only the finances to manage, disciplinary matters and the thorny subject of new judges for Council to worry about.

What is sad, and happily seems to have stopped for now, is certain members venting their spleen on Social media. This breed Society deserves respect, if only for its longevity. No Council will get t right every time in its deliberations, but speaking as someone who has had plenty to say over the years on various issues, the fact that I have had no cause to write in complaint for at least seven years says something for the stability of the Society and the fact that despite the obvious temptations, it sticks to its remit. Long may it remain so.

A report on the Southern Group Lunch

 
This year again the Southern group lunch was held at Hamptworth golf course and county club. The venue is a nice setting, with a friendly atmosphere and lovely food. After we all finished eating Cliff gave a short speech, firstly thanking Carol Webb who has always been there for Cliff and I even when she has a lot going on at home at the moment, then Lynda Rowland for all her input as our membership secretary, Becky Westall for doing such a great job on our group website, (unfortunately Becky wasn’t feeling too well so was unable to attend.) We all hope Becky and James both get better soon. Nick Williams for travelling from the Isle of Wright to steward at all three of our shows, Pat Slade for making our lovely show rosettes, and of course all the fantastic sponsors and most of all the members for supporting us at our shows, we couldn't do it without you.
When Cliff and I took over the group last year we decided sadly we didn't have enough spare time to organise group show awards, but having found the beautiful Greenhust trophy in the bottom of a large cardboard box it seemed a shame not to use it. So we decided to present the trophy to a person, pony or both that has contribution to the group during the last year. We decided this year the trophy should be awarded to George Getley and his twenty-one-year-old chestnut pony Callum of Wortingwood for their years of commitment to the group. We also thought we should make a special mention to Sharon Ball and Pauline Smith pony Blackator Angel for all her successes in 2015. With all the formalities over it just left the raffle organized by Mandy Sargeant it was no surprise the large hamper of fruit and bag of carrots were some of the first prizes to be picked from the large display of gifts. I was delighted with my wine and head collar rope I won.

George Getley

Many thanks to those of you who travelled a long way to attend and hope you had a safe journey home.

Looking forward to seeing you all at our first show at Priory Equestrian centre, Farnham, Surrey on the 10th of April.

Group Secretary

SPSBS Driven Performance Award Scheme
Members and friends of the SPSBS Driven Performance Awards Scheme met in early January at The Moat House Acton Trussell Staffordshire for the annual lunch and awards presentation. Horrendous weather in Scotland prevented several members attendance, however 50 including several youngsters from around the country were able to make the journey.

Coffee and biscuits were served on arrival and a delicious lunch enjoyed before our guest speaker Colin Pawson LHHI and a member of the Coaching Club talked about the history of coaching through to the present day. Colin who was resplendent in full coach guard livery played coach horn calls  on an imaginary journey and included personal anecdotes of his involvement in modern day coaching.

Colin presented the trophies, cups and rosettes (results and pictures attached)

Members and guests contributed very generously to the raffle organised by Doreen and Peter Tindale. Peter proposed a vote of thanks to Willowe Keeley in appreciation of her enormous input to the Scheme.

A training day is booked with Sue Mart at Bennington Carriages(Lincolnshire) on Saturday April 16th 2016. Participants must be members of the scheme, booking will be on a 1st come 1st served basis further details from Willowe at willowe.keeley@virgin.net  however spectators are very welcome and warmly invited to attend a ”truly Shetland day” Do join us, you could be tempted to consider driving!

The Hon. Mrs. Helen Jennifer Casswell  (Jenny), Monkshill Shetlands.

It is with great sadness that I report the death of Jenny Casswell, after a
short illness, on January 4th, 2016.
She and her husband Simon had bred Shetland Ponies since 1963, becoming one of
the oldest studs in the SPSBS annals. Starting with standard sizes, based on
stock from the late T.H.F (Tom) Myles and from the late Mrs. Ritchie's Netherley
Stud, and using the late Lady Joan Gore Langton's South Park stallions, she bred
small numbers of top quality ponies, with excellent temperament, "type", good
heads, fronts and bone.
As she got older, she moved to the sub 34 inch (miniature) sized ponies (most of
our current stock are based on Kerswell blood lines), as being more manageable
with her reduced mobility, but maintained her high level of standard of stock.
She showed a little over the years, achieving champions in both her standard and
mini ponies.
The funeral will be held at Charing Crematorium, Kent, TN27 0EB, on Monday 25th
January, 2016, at 2.50pm, and afterwards at the Monkshill Shetland stud in
Smarden.
Flowers, or donations to the Kent Air Ambulance, are welcome, ℅ K.B.Sills,
Funeral Directors, Cranbrook, Kent. 01580 712284.
