Ponies in Sweaters!

These ponies are so cute in their cardigans.

They are the two things Shetland is most famous for so its perhaps surprising no one had the idea before.

Shetland ponies and Fair Isle knitwear are beloved across the world, so why not combine the two?

The result is two cosy-looking mares dressed in button-down Fair Isle jumpers to promote the Year of Natural Scotland.

What's next? Pigs in tights? Pit bulls in tutus? Puppies in pajamas? I'm afraid to google those!

I did google pit bulls in tutus and puppies in pajamas - and found lots of pictures of those! Try it - it's fun.
