Today, Ascot Racecourse unveiled a new festive ‘foursie’ – a seasonal onesie that was created for its mascot animal – a Shetland pony, Daffy, to help him keep warm this Christmas. For those of you who haven’t heard what the Ascot races are – it’s one of the leading thoroughbred racing facilities in Britain, operating since 1711.
“In winter I always worry about Daffy getting chilly as he likes to spend so much time out of his stable,” said owner Jackie Rowberry. And though horses and ponies, especially the ones who are accustomed to spending most of their time outside even at freezing temperatures don’t need any onesies, sometimes when they’re older or have some health issues they need to blanketed to keep them warm and snuggly.
“I love the fact that Ascot has created a special foursie for this cute animal so that he can get into the Christmas time spirit. Daffy loved all the attention and is quite the envy among his stable buddies!”
