Some of you might have already seen a few of these photographs circling around the internet, but in case you didn’t, we here at Black Mountain Ranch had to make sure that you did.

Yep, you haven’t read incorrectly, that was in fact Shetland Ponies in Cardigans. In an effort to drum up some attention for VisitScotland, Fivla and Vitamin took center stage. They didn’t seem to mind the attention, either.

Needless to say, you don’t have to worry about us getting any fancy ideas. Besides, our horses are more the “western shirt and cowboy boots” kind of gang.

Be sure to watch a behind the scenes clip from the photo shoot. Fivla and Vitamin were wonderful sports and it is worth every second.
