Pit pony, Beamish

  • Description

    "At one time, there were 70,000 ponies hauling coal from underground in Britain. Shetlands were often used because of their small size. As this one is for demonstration purposes at Beamish Open Air Museum, he has probably never seen the inside of a mine - although, there is a drift mine at the museum." Photo by Pauline E, 2011.
