The Long and the Short of It

Fire crews have been called out four times to rescue a tiny pony – because its legs are so short people think it’s stuck in mud.

Two fire engines and a specialist lifting vehicle have been despatched four times at a combined cost of about £8,000 to save the horse, called Mayflower.

The animal’s stumpy legs are so out of proportion with its long body that people assume she’s sinking in the salty marshland where she grazes by the River Test in Southampton

Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service have now nicknamed the 2ft 4ins tall pony ‘Shorty’, reports The Sun.
