Are they cold? Are they just a couple of ponies with a need for cozy? Or do these two cuties have an eye for style unsurpassed by any normal horse?
The answer: None of the above. These chubby and adorable Shetland ponies are actually wearing wooly sweaters for the good of their homeland’s economy in a brilliant ad campaign for VisitScotland! “Posing in their winter woollies, the ponies were marking the Year of Natural Scotland by sporting some rather plush knitwear that wouldn’t seem out of place in any trendy city hangout,” the site explains. “It’s safe to say both Fivla and Vitamin didn’t seem to mind all the attention their custom-made attire brought them.” Check out the campaign ~ and a behind the scenes video ~ below!
First, the superstars went into wardrobe. Well, more accurately, wardrobe came to the super stars. The shetland ponies' sweaters were custom-made in a style similar to a horse blanket to ensure comfort.
Tiny hoove-holes for their dainty pony feet!
Getting dressed is hard work, so next it was totally snack time.
Finally, it was time to film! Lights!...Camera!...Sweet pony action!!
