Pub-Going Pony

Have you heard the one about the pony who walks into a bar?

It is true in Cornwall.

Toby the Shetland from St Blazey likes to pop into his local for a pint.

The 28 year old has retired after years working in carnivals.

Owner Amos Putt goes out with him: "I use St Blazey Football Club, that's my local but he doesn't mind, as long he can have a pint of beer, where he goes. He has a pint and he enjoys it. I get some strange looks but people take their dogs out, I take my pony out; what's wrong with that?"
