Shetland pony  [edit]

 

History of the Shetland
The Shetland has inhabited the Shetland Islands off of Northern Scotland for over two thousand years, although the exact origins of the breed are unclear. The harsh conditions in Shetland Isles have developed the pony into what is widely regarded as a particularly hardy variety of horse. Shetland Ponies were traditionally used as pit ponies and also used for pulling carts of peat. Due to isolation on the Shetland Islands there has been very little change to the Shetland breed in its long history.
