Two Shetland ponies, Fivla and Vitamin, are getting noticed for their unusual fashion sense. It's all part of a Scottish campaign to attract more tourists.
Jeanne Moos takes a look.
Scottish tourism officials wanted to combine their two most famous exports: Shetland ponies and Shetland knitwear.
Doreen Brown, known for her Shetland wool knitwear, encountered some unique challenges when making the $200 sweaters for the ponies.
"You had to work out where his legs came. And then, of course, he had a wide neck compared to a human being," Brown told Moos.
Fivla and Vitamin got their sleeves dirty during the photo shoot, but the sweaters are hand washable.
