A Morley college has welcomed its newest addition to the stables – a miniature Shetland Pony called Jim.

Jim, who is the size of a large dog, will act as a small and manageable introduction to horse care for new Equine and Animal Care students and make appearances at children’s birthday parties at the Food Hub at Broomfield College.

Equine team leader Stephanie Meadows said: “Despite his size he has a big appetite and is ideal for pastures management on the smaller plots of land on the site so he is effectively our own miniature lawn mower!”
