1. The Shetland Pony

1. The Shetland Pony

Here we have a picture of a Shetland pony mare and her foal. In days gone by these tiny horses did nearly all the agricultural work of the crofts, but today they are largely replaced by tractors, and the Shetland pony is quite scarce on its native islands. However, there are many to be found in the south, where it is highly esteemed as a children's riding pony. Lucky indeed is the small child who has one of these delightful and docile ponies as his first mount.
