Thanks so much Ladies!

Shetlands have a special place in my heart :) I've moved this spotting to the Pets category for you. This helps separate the wild and domestic/captive spottings.

Hi TTaylor! Coiud you please crop or replace this image so that the little girl is not showing. On Project Noah we ask users to refrain from showing people on their spottings, especially children. This is for safety reasons, and to maintain the focus of the site on nature only. Thank you in advance
