Speckled pony foal – I believed it was a Shetland pony, as it was with its mother at the time and she looked like a Shetland pony. However, the Shetland Pony experts in the UK have emailed me to tell me there is no such thing as spotted Shetlands so there we are! ;o) All I know is I just wanted to pick up the cute critter and take him home with me.

New Forest, Hampshire, England.

    he is wonderful and i dont think he is a shetland, but would love to know what breed, i have seen one simular before many years ago, but for the life of me i cannot think of the breed, but it is just stunning, makes you wonder what he will be like full grown, great picture, have a fab weekend dawn

  • I don’t know Dawn – I saw him with his mother who looked like a Shetland! Who cares anyway – he is unique, don’t ya think? Have a great rest-of-the-weekend too!

    Sooo precious!!! I love it! And he was in the wild?

  • Thank you Crockpot! Yes, New Forest Ponies are sort of wild, do their own thing and roam free all over the Forest. Historically they are supposed to belong to the Forest “Commoners” and their welfare is observed and managed (the ponies, not the Commoners, although maybe they got that the wrong way round!) ;o)

    Looks a real sweetie :)

  • Thanks Michael! I have seen a British Spotted pony but it was larger than this little baby will grow to. Whatever, he is a real sweetie, regardless! ;o)

    How precious it that! Looks like a leopard Appalossa foul but if he’s really tiny then I don’t know!!

  • Yeah, I know what you mean about the Appaloosa, but in the New Forest we only have New Forest Ponies and Shetland! Maybe I should go check him out! This was photographed last autumn! Thanks for your kind words! ;o)
