Ponies by the yard
You couldn't make it up. 13 year-old girl in Stoke-on-Trent orders a 'free pony' on the internet. Said pony actually arrives, and is left in the back yard of her Nan's house in Ford Green, giving the girl's Nan quite a surprise. Pony gets named 'Melvin'. And presumably, but the look of him, gets a bit of a trim and a wash.
Hopefully they can do a crowdfunder now, to pay for the vet's bills and a nice field.
Update: Melvin has now been taken in by Penny Farm Horse rehabilitation centre, near Blackpool.
