Crossbred Pony is Not Stuck in the Mud

People who see Shorty on the banks of the river Test in Redbridge, Southampton, England tend to call emergency services because they are convinced the poor pony is stuck in the mud. Four times Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service’s animal rescue team has responded to find that the pony was fine.
Animal rescue expert Anton Phillips was one of no less than 12 rescuers dispatched to help the animal before realising the pony was not in any distress.

He said: “This was the fourth time we have been called out by members of the public who have seen this pony on the salt marsh.

“It’s basically a cross between a Shetland pony and a New Forest pony and has definitely inherited features from both its mother and its father – it has short legs like a Shetland but a long body like a New Forest pony.

“From 200 yards away it does look like the pony is trapped in the mud, especially when it is stood next to other ponies.
