A tiny Shetland pony had a munch on Prince Harry's hand

Fun Shetland pony fact: their relatively poor vision means they often mistake members of the royal family for a pack of polos.

You don’t wanna mess with Shetland ponies.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made their first official visit to Scotland on Tuesday. They started their tour in Edinburgh, and were greeted at the castle by regimental mascot Cruachan IV — a tiny Shetland pony.

Cruachan clearly does not pander to royalty, as he gave Harry a warning nibble — presumably because he takes issue with the democratic implications of a non-elected head of state.

Long gone are the days when ponies would be beheaded for such insurrection. Now the pony revolution can begin in earnest… don’t say we didn’t warn you.
