Ponies Presented with Fair Isle Jumpers

Adorable ponies Albert and Ernie were presented with matching fancy knitwear after completing an 800 mile journey to the Shetlands, the home of their ancestors.

Ponies Presented with Fair Isle Jumpers

They’re probably not in desperate need for the warmth of colourful knitwear but they look a-neigh-zing and that’s what matters. Along with their owner Emma Massingale, 34, the trio look positively dashing in their matching attire and are sure to turn heads. Their month-long journey came about after Emma wanted them to sample life on the Scottish islands where their peers have lived for over 4,000 years. After some trepidation Albert and Ernie soon made friends and mingled with the fellow ponies. “They are designed to be in that environment. Seeing them thrive just gave me such a boost,” said Emma.
