Two Shetland ponies from Devon, UK, were taken on the boat trip of a lifetime to trace their ancestral roots in the Shetland Islands in Scotland.

Albert and Ernie went on a Who Do You Think You Are-style trip with their owner Emma Massingale — a horse whisperer — where they met their distant relatives and ran wild with the local herd.

Ernie — who was rescued four years ago from Bodmin Moor in Cornwall by Massingale — is related to one of the first Shetland ponies on the Shetland islands.
