Where to begin with this wonderful childís Shetland who was certainly an ambassador for the breed.
We wanted to purchase a Shetland black gelding up to height for a thoroughbred companion to befriend one of our thoroughbreds.
We contacted many studs and got lists back, Fenwick Stud were great to deal with and had chosen two for us to look at and we chose Odie. At the foal shows we only had an APSB-riding pony to take to the foal show at Werribee so Odie was prepared at late notice. He exceeded all expectations and was Supreme led Shetland.
Odie was shown extensively, was broken in and Kady Moore took to child proof and road him down the river etc.
Odie has a huge portfolio at shows winning supremeís, top tens at SHC shows, child champions at APSB shows and the list goes on.
Odieís truest accolade was educating children throughout Victoria. We have lost count to the numerous amounts of children that Odie taught to ride. I apologize if I donít have a photo. He was the kindest pony you could get and loved and adoured children.
Odie was taught to go in a cart but soon let us know that wasnít for him, he preferred people on his back.
He certainly did his job as a thoroughbred companion and went to Flemington on occasion.
Farewell our little Keg.
Odie Odie Odie ooh ooh ooh.
Condolence to his past family for the last four to five years-Charli Woodward. We are just so blessed that he found another little girl and family to love and Adour him.
Please share your stories of this wonderful little ambassador.
We welcome you to comment on photos and share your little stories of a wonderful pony. Please if we missed a photo of you on facebook send a photo and we will add. RIP dear little man.

"Charli Meeting Odie for the first time."
Odies last bath at Uhavta.
(Odie at Oaks day Flemington 2014, lead rein pony Swan Hill show 2013)
Our beloved Odie is now owned by Charli Woodward and the Woodward family.
We purchased Odie as a foal to be a racehorse companion and child's pony.
Odie exceeded all our expectations.
Odie has had numerous children ride him and he has taught and given many children the confidence to ride solo.
Now it is Odie and Charli's turn. Please give Odie los of hugs and kisses from us, as he is sadly missed but we are excited at the same time for the bond that will grow with Odie and Charl.
