The Eriskay Ponies are a hardy little bunch, with their dense waterproof coats and windswept manes. They are considered a rare breed these days. Their origins lie within the Western Isles where they were used as draft horses. They are the very essence of the islands they roam, friendly, hard working and of course those bleached manes echo the windswept landscape.
They even have their own society! http://www.eriskaypony.com/
