Two men, aged 26 and 24, were arrested in the late evening of yesterday (Thursday 22 July) on suspicion of theft.shetland pony
This comes following the news that the missing 33-year-old shetland pony Peter Pumpkin was sadly found deceased on Tuesday 20 July.
The two men remain in our custody whilst our investigation and enquiries continue.
Inspector Phil Hinch said: “We would like to thank everyone for their support within this investigation and for assisting with our enquiries.
“We understand the emotions and impact that this incident has had on the local community. We have conducted extensive enquiries to get to this stage and these will be continuing.
“If you have any information regarding the reported theft of Peter Pumpkin, or witnessed anything suspicious, please contact us on 101 quoting crime reference 16/72507/21.”
 
The theft is believed to have occurred at 11:30pm on Saturday 17 July 2021.
The pony is chestnut in colour with two distinctive white markings on his face and is around 40 inches tall.
Peter Pumpkin the pony is 33 years old and requires daily medication and officers are concerned that the current heatwave will have a detriment to his health if he is not located soon.
Sergeant Julie Fenton says: “Peter is a much loved and adored pony who has been in his owners family for 31 years. Understandably, they have been left devastated by this incident.
“They have been over-whelmed by the help and generosity of the public so far with searches and information, however we are continuing our appeal.

Lucie Dale loves her ponies so much, she doesn’t need cajoling or persuading to ride for the benefit and aggrandisement of her nearest and dearest. Only her second show since last summer, she had success 2 weeks ago at the Pony Club Show winning the championship. She’d practiced hard before that, but knowing Area 20 NPS was today, 20th June, she has been riding Cranford Fiddledydee for an hour and a half everyday. Not just schooling, riding around the gallops and hacking out. ‘Fiddle’ is schooled to the teeth, but she is primarily an open pony, and getting an ‘open’ pony to drop down a gear or three requires practice. This is where Sally, her Mum comes in, instructing Lucie. 20th June at NPS Area 20 with the best entry in years at The South of England Showground, Lucie and Fiddle were 1st tiny tot first ridden and champion 2nd lead rein 4th first ridden. I expect a good well schooled Shetland to get a result, but whilst it is better it still ain’t easy, so well done The Ghyll Park team, not least Amy Porter, for preparing Fiddle for show day.
And whilst the adults, not least me crashed out, not Lucie, straight off down to the riding school arena, helping.

shetland pony news

It all started last Saturday when we were devastated by the loss of one of our beautiful older mares Parlington Orchid shortly after she gave birth to a gorgeous little bay and white filly called Isabella, by Parlington Quentin. She was the sweetest mare you could ever wish to meet, I don’t think I ever saw her put her ears back and she would let children cuddle her foals even when just born. We will miss her terribly 🙁 Thankfully her little foal was very well so we fed her colostrum that I had saved in the freezer and we set up a heat lamp in the corner of a stable with 27yr old Teddy bear Humbug, next to her for company. Jacky and Steve kindly brought powdered mares milk up for me and big Ted for her to snuggle up to. Everyone was very kind and helpful sharing posts for foster mares but unfortunately the ones that were the right size were just too far away to collect as we also had another mare waxed up that we couldn’t leave. Just when I was starting to really struggle with the hourly feeds our good friends Lucinda and Jamie rang to say that Parlington Victoria had sadly lost her colt foal 6 weeks early. Even though they had suffered a devastating loss they were kind enough to think of us and brought Victoria straight over to see if she would take Isabella. We were all exhausted and it was a tense moment after we had covered Isabella in afterbirth fluid to see if Victoria would take her but we needn’t have worried as it was love at first sight. The hard bit was convincing Isabella that she was no longer a human!! but with Wilf holding a back leg up, me pointing her in the right direction and Jamie squeezing Victoria’s milk through the rubber teat that we had been using we eventually got there. A joyous and emotional moment that we will never forget 🙂

Thank you to everyone who got in touch to help – Di & Wilf – Parlington Stud

As from 1 January 2022 all foals registered with the SPS-BS must have a DNA profile of the sire completed. As a Charity, Shetland Pony Stud Book Society are obliged to ensure registered ponies are a pure breed. The Society recommends that members put their colts through the Voluntary Vetting Examination (VVE). This is done to ensure stallions are free from any hereditary conditions. Should you buy a mare in foal please check that the sire has a DNA profile.
