Obrigado Lina

Penso que é um pônei das Ilhas de Shetland, ao nordeste da Escócia. São forte e inteligente, eram impotados a Inglaterra durante a Revolução Industrial trabalhar nas minas de carvão. Agora têm uma vida mais Melhor!

Abraços Peter

Hi Peter! is it horse?

Hi Diggory

This is a Shetland Pony, they originate from the Isles of Shetland, to the Northwest of Scotland, and may have been there 1000 years BC.

They were brought to England during the Industrial revolution as they were very strong and hard working. I also believe that they were exported to America. Unfortunately many worked down the coal mines and some never saw the light of day.

They are considered quite intelligent, and seem very friendly. Click here and...

here to see another that we met and he did not want us to leave!

Best wishes Peter
