The Shetland ponies life cycle works in much the same way as other horses. They are born, grow up, reproduce, and die.

Shetland ponies originate from the Shetland Islands off of the British coast. They are small, but very sturdy animals that are built to hold grown men despite their size. They can weigh up to 700 pounds.
The character of a shetland pony is strong and legandary. Though small, they are strong-minded and will not be dominated, as many young riders have found out. Some shetlands are more fiesty than others- it depends how they are brought up.
Up to 63 days on average.
It depends on the breeding of the miniature pony. Some look more like Shetland ponies, and some look like down-sized Arabians. Miniature ponies can be great lawn-mowers, family pets, show champions, led ponies and ridden ponies for small children. Miniature ponies are generally good-natured, but some tend not to be broken in properlly. and can be timid. Look up Minature Ponies on the Internet for more information, Winnie the Horse Gentler
I have seen a Shetland run that was thin and athletic beside a fat one and it left the other in the dust. SO i guess what I'm trying to say is that it depends on the horse. But I'm going to guess that a Shetland can run up to 20-25 MPH max. Those short little legs are surprisingly coordinated, fast and swift.
