Black roan (blue roan) Shetland mare Seva Infanta.

Black roan (blue roan) Shetland mare Seva Infanta.

American Shetland Pony mare, Modern type. The American modern has been bred to be extreme in appearance and movement. It is hard for me to see it as Shetland. It has a lot of Welsh and Hackney Pony in it, and strongly resembles the Hackney in movement. It is sometimes shown with weighted shoes for high stepping and I fear these elegant little ponies might be tortured like Tennessee Walking Horses. I hope not.

Cremello Shetland Pony mare Birchwood Vanilla Ice. Double-diluted Shetlands are rarely seen even but they do occur, as palominos, buckskins and smoky blacks are quite common colors of Shetlands.
