Scotland’s national tourist board at VisitScotland are gearing for the Year of Natural Scotland 2013 to celebrate their land and reputation. To generate interest from tourists, they dressed up two adorable Shetland ponies (named Fivla and Vitamin) in cardigans and had photographer Rob McDougall capture their cute and warm new looks in various beautiful landscapes throughout Scotland. You can view more photos of the ponies at the VisitScotland blog.
The Shetland Pony ambassadors from our photos 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.
