Shetland Livestock Marketing Group in conjunction with Aberdeen & Northern Marts sold 38 registered Shetland ponies out of a catalogued 68 at their annual sale.

Buyers were extremely selective. Most ponies sold were either bid for by telephone or on i-bidder. Ponies were sold to buyers from Norway, Sweden and Texas US, thus proving the worth and flexibility of the i-bidder system.
