Default Scottish Band Marching

I spend some of my leisure surfing YouTube all sorts of subjects and decided to see what I could find about British marching bands and these are a couple that i watched and thoroughly enjoyed.

At the same time, as a Yank, I do have a few of questions.

When a British soldier marches is there a specified height that his arms should reach in the swing?

Why are some of the pipers in the Royal Regiment of Scots wearing green coats and Royal Stuart kilts?

Love the pony mascot as he looks like such a sweetie and just marches along with his regiment. My I ask why the regiment has a pony as their mascot. I believe it's the Royal Fusiliers have a goat as their mascot.

Just wanted to share this and hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
