Shetland Woollies Goes Viral

Shetland Ponies Show Why Scotland's For Them! 

Some great images have been going worldwide over the past few days showing some natty Shetland cardigans on some rather unsuspecting 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. Or indeed in the Great British Bake Off...

We have been assured that no animals were harmed in the making of this PR stunt and both Fivla and Vitamin (yes for that is what they are called!) didn’t seem to mind all the attention their custom made attire brought them.

The Shetland Pony ambassadors from thephotos come courtesy of Thordale Shetland Stud Centre, and are wearing jumpers made of Shetland wool created by local Shetland knitter Doreen Brown, of Shetland Collection.

What next?

The Edinburgh Zoo Pandas in Kilts? Otters in wet suits? Or Scottish Deer in full camouflage gear?

For more information about visiting The Shetlands or how about booking a lighthouse stay on the islands.
