Do they not exist in Canada or somthing? I've been hunting for breeders, any websites for Shetlands in Canada and I can't find ANYTHING. I've never seen any Shetlands here either. I'm starting to get the idea that they don't exist here! haha Obviously I'm kidding but it's driving me bonkers.

There aren't many. A lot of the Moderns can't be registered in Canada because of Hackney in their backgrounds. A woman just recently imported two Classics - both Buckskins, one from Royal Pony Farm and one from Country Classics but I don't know her name. Think she was in Ontario somewhere.

Hi,

I own a Modern Pleasure Shetland mare. Her sire is the hall of fame sire, Raven Of Bird Haven. Her name is Wilk's Black Passion. I bought her from Shauney's Shetlands and Miniatures. Laura has a stallion standing at stud and has a Modern Mare for sale. There are also a few breeders here in Quebec. I have seen them at the shows but do not know there names.

Along with our partner Rita Noble of Noblebrook Miniatures in Erin, Ont., we just purchased ESTABLO RADIANT, a 100% Arenosa weanling colt from Sandy Nicolls of Moody, Texas.

We'll be in the market for AMHR/ASPC registered mares or fillies in the spring of 2006 with a view to raising Arenosa foals.

I also know someone else here in Ontario who recently purchased an Arenosa pony, but I don't even know if it's a mare or stallion, or anything else about it.

I think it's definitely the wave of the future and it's only a matter of a short time before you'll be seeing American shetlands up here. As already pointed out in a previous reply, the Canadian registry is very different from that of the U.S. and the link that was provided for you should be of great help.

I had to "go" to Canada to find my new Modern mare and I am very, very glad I found her and her owner!

To her owner, a big Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!
She is perfect!
