The island of Foula – a Shetland island off the coast of Scotland – is perhaps unsurprisingly where Shetland ponies originated from and horses have apparently lived there since the Bronze Age. To get there, you’ll need to catch a ferry from the mainland, which departs just a three times a week, or an eight-seat plane which’ll give you the best views of the island.

This photo reminded me of a time (circa 1960) when photographers often went door to door with a shetland pony much like this one, to take & sell photos of the children sitting on the horse to the parents.
