Adam and his Shetland pony Haki have been inseparable. Haki is clever and brave and Adam soon trains him to do things other Shetland ponies can't -- to act, to dance and to follow the sound of Adam's bagpipes. But Adam must move off the island to find work and selling Haki is the only way he can leave. Then the pair performs at the Highland Show and a ringmaster is so impressed by the talented pony that he lets Haki, and Adam, join his travelling circus. Haki -- with Sondra the friendly elephant -- become stars of the big tent but some of the circus folk are jealous of their success. Can Adam protect his friend? This classic children's novel from much-loved author Kathleen Fidler takes the reader on an entertaining journey -- from a small Scottish crofting community to the bright lights of the circus. Fidler's authentic and charming depiction of life on Shetland remain, to this day, an unrivalled portrait of Scotland’s islands.

Shetland ponies are cute, squat, intelligent little equines that originate from the Shetland Isles. They come in different colours and colour combinations and have beautiful long manes and tails. You will find them in two sizes, standard and miniature. Shetland ponies have been transformed into film, television, animation and an endless range of toys that children can't get enough of. But Shetland ponies aren't just for children, many adults compete in events, like carting and carriage racing, with Shetland ponies. Whatever the reason that you want to get a Shetland pony, you can't go wrong! They are friendly companions that can be easily trained, and many become keen competitors in all types of events and competitions. Shetland ponies are also gentle and understanding, so they make ideal pets and rides for children, as well as companion animals to people and other equines. Shetland ponies are known to be easy keepers, and they are. They are hardy, strong equines that have few genetic diseases, and are not inclined to diseases, other than dietary related conditions. Learning how to feed a Shetland pony properly is key to keeping it in good health, and novice owners must pay careful attention to their Shetland pony's dietary needs. Shetland ponies originate from working ponies. On the Shetland Isles they were used to pull carts, ploughs and as transport for centuries, and in the 1800's they were used in the mining industry. They are physically strong and comparing size for size, they are the strongest of all equines. That means that they have to be properly trained at an early age to get the best out of them. Their gentle nature and feisty spirit is an excellent combination but requires a firm but gentle hand when training them. This book will take a novice owner through the history of Shetland ponies, as well as explain their specific needs and how to take care of them. A well trained and properly fed Shetland pony will reward you with love, loyalty, willingness, plenty of laughs and lots of entertainment as its fun, cheeky personality comes through. Covered in this book: - Accessories - Activities - Breed standards - Choosing the right pony - Common diseases - Costs - Daily care - Diet - Equine terminology - Grooming - Health - History - Licencing - Stable management - Temperament .... and much more
