Shetland Livestock Marketing Group in conjunction with Aberdeen & Northern Marts sold 65 Shetland ponies from a catalogued entry of 74.

All classes sold extremely well with all vendors commenting it had been the best quality entry and the best trade for many years. The i-bidder system has now established itself as being an essential tool for marketing ponies alongside traditional methods. Many buyers had travelled from the mainland in addition.
