Pedro is a Shetland Pony that lives at the Ebony Horse Club in London. He lives in a stall with a normal-sized stall door. He has to stretch high up to just barely look over the edge at the world outside. So members of the club commissioned a periscope that lets Pedro see at his own height. They call it the Pedroscope.
Andy Morris, owner of Print and Cut, said: “We got an email from the Ebony Horse Club who were asking for our help, it was so nice, and a little bit funny, that we decided to give it a go."
And being experts in 3D printing, workers at the Stockport company knew a small and relatively easy gesture would mean the world to Pedro.
Andy, 38, said: “The sketch was sent to us and then I turned it into a 3D sketch with some software, and then it was sent to be made. It was all quite easy, and we did it for free to help Pedro.
