The Minions – In January 2014, having sold the majority of our standard Shetland pony stud stock, I suddenly found myself rescuing 3 dying Shetland pony foals.
In December 2014, another little colt foal was added to the bunch. In the Spring of 2016 we were asked to take an orphan colt foal, and later a Facebook “free-to-a-good-home” colt foal bringing the total up to 6 little Minions.
These little ponies have a home for life here at Thordale.
