Our Facilities

Unknown to most people, Shetlands have more specialist needs than horses. At Munchkins, we are able to facilitate Shetlands with complex needs and have the following facilities:

Stable Block.jpg

Custom Built Stable Block

Built in 2019, our stable block is built specifically for Shetlands with low doors, low internal walls so the ponies can see each other and a sand area connecting the 2 blocks. The stable block is ideal for ponies who need time off grass or who are unwell.

Isolation Paddock & Shelter

For new arrivals to settle in seperate from the rest of the herd. New arrivals are tested for diseases upon arrival and spend 3 weeks in isolation.

Laminitis Paddock

for our laminitic ponies who cannot be on grass. This area allows them to have freedom and move around without being shut in. 

Track System.jpg

Track System

for those ponies who are on restricted grazing. Hay is scattered in piles around the track so they have to move to find their food. They can also forage from the surrounding hedgerows.

Yard.jpg

Concrete Yard

to provide hard standing when the fields become wet and muddy in the winter. It is also good for those who need time off of grass to move around and not be shut in.

Sand School.jpg

Sand School

for those who cannot live on grass who suffer from laminitis. The sand is soft on their feet and allows them to move around rather than being shut in a stable.

Lorry.jpg

Custom Built Horse Lorry

so that we are able to safely transport the ponies between our sites, to vet visits and from urgent rescue cases.
