Some rather striking cardigans have been seen on an usual set of Shetland residents – Shetland Ponies. Posing in their winter woollies, the ponies were marking the Year of Natural Scotland by sporting some rather plush knitwear that wouldn’t seem out of place in any trendy city hangout.
It’s safe to say both Fivla and Vitamin didn’t seem to mind all the attention their custom made attire brought them.
