What else would Shetland ponies wear but Shetland sweaters? (Or jumpers, as sweaters are called in the UK). And why are they wearing them? The VisitScotland web site says this, “We’ve got our very own Shetland pony ambassadors who are helping promote the Year of Natural Scotland with beautifully created cardigans, made just for them. Ponies Fivla and Vitamin from the Thorndale Shetland Driving Centre, strike a pose with their new winter woolies. Local knitter Doreen Brown created these knitted jumpers from Shetland wool. Why not find out more about art and culture across Shetland?”

There is a video on Youtube of the ponies being dressed in the cardigans. Here is the link. VisitScotland
