Shetland Animals


We have lots of great animals Shetland ponies, sheep, cows, rabbits and birds.  Wherever you look you will see animals. People enter animals into the Yell Show, The Yell Show is a livestock show where people enter their animals and win prizes. Shetland ponies are special because they have big thick hair coats,  Shetland ponies are quite strong because they used to be working ponies in Shetland.  Shetland sheep are smaller than most of the sheep, When it is windy sheep stay warm like ponies with their woollen coats We are quite famous because the sheep wool off the sheep are made into Fair Isle jumpers and carpet. We have Shetland cows and so we get fresh milk from the islands around Yell, Shetland Cows survive in Shetland but in the most wild winds people put them in barns to keep them lovely and warm.
