Ponies

Equus ferus caballus

Description:

The word "pony" derives from the old French poulenet, meaning foal, a young, immature horse. Domesticated ponies of all breeds originally developed mainly from the need for a working animal that could fulfill specific local draft and transportation needs while surviving in harsh environments.

They have such heavy coats you would think they were Shetland ponies.
