Norfolk's Jack the miniature Shetland pony now attending weddings
Norfolk superstar Jack the miniature Shetland pony is on a mission to bring a smile to people's faces.
With his well-groomed good looks, he's well known on the local wedding scene and is a real show-stealer kitted out in his leather bridle, lead rope, decorated harness and wicker baskets filled with petal confetti.
"Jack really enjoys all the attention he gets at weddings," says owner Ali Stearn. During the current challenging times he's not been resting on his laurels but has been putting his charms to good use in his other important role; bringing joy to dementia patients.
As an ambassador for Dementia UK, Ali and Jack have been on a mission to not only raise smiles but funds for the charity by visiting local carehomes. During lockdown they've been stepping up the visits and although they can't go inside, just seeing Jack from the window has been a real tonic for the residents.
"Jack loves his outings too. We have really missed going into the homes, so this has been just as wonderful for me and Jack, as it has for them," adds Ali.
