Earlier today we mentioned a new “ad campaign” that VisitScotland has just started, a photo shoot involving a couple of Shetland ponies wearing eye-catching cardigans. These ponies-in-cardigans meme launches the “Year of Natural Scotland 2013” this year for the tourism board, and are very likely to be a hit for their adorableness factor.

So as a public service to brighten up the rest of your crappy day, here’re the eight photos  of Fivla and Vitamin, wearing jumpers made of Shetland wool created by local Shetland knitter Doreen Brown, of Shetland Collection.
