|Mini shetlands are perfect!|
I just love this cold, snowy weather and wish it could stay forever! As a Shetland pony I am in my element in these sub-zero temperatures.
My ancestors come from the Shetland Isles which is a tiny group of Islands many pony miles off the North coast of Scotland. These Islands are harsh, it is very cold, very windy and there is not much vegetation, there are virtually no trees as it's too windy for them to survive. My ancestors are perfectly adapted to life in this harsh landscape (see mules, you're not the only ones adapted to harsh climates;-)
Those nice ancestors of mine have given me some great characteristics to survive this
Have you noticed how big The Mini's ears are? Hmmm can't miss them can you.... they're not great in this weather though, they lose a lot of heat! Donkeys have those nice, bigs ears to help dissipate heat in the desert, not much good when it's freezing!

Next up is my perfect pony tail. My tail is low set and covers my delectable behind, there will certainly be no heat lost from sensitive areas with such good thermal underwear.... Zoe this one's for you, I know how you like a good pony rear piccie!

Anyway muleteers, I'm off to do some digging for grass! Sending you all Roller Polar snuffles to keep you warm xxx
