We underestimated corgis.
The internet loves corgis—especially videos of corgis doing silly things. Usually, these videos don’t depict the jolly, short-legged dogs as particularly agile. But maybe we underestimated them.
A video captured by a 22-year-old woman in Missouri shows a corgi riding on the back of a pony. Excuse me, a one-eyed pony named Cricket. Callie Schenker says the corgi belongs to her neighbors, and the dog apparently snuck onto her property and befriended Cricket while all the humans weren’t watching.

News anchor Katy Andersen tweeted a link to the video on Wednesday, and it quickly spread across the internet. Over the last couple of days, the video was retweeted by more than 50,000 people on Twitter. If you watched the video, you probably have a few questions. How the hell did this corgi climb onto the pony’s back? Did the pony bow down? Did the corgi bounce from the fence to the pony’s back? Can the pony and the corgi communicate with each other?
It’s probably best not to think too much about the logistics of this video. Just enjoy it as a break from the daily soul-crushing news cycle. The internet is certainly enjoying it:
Can't stop laughing at this. How did the Corgi get up there?? https://t.co/BZH9fFu4He

One person made a request: Set the video to Ginuwine’s 1996 hit song “Pony.”
Someone put some Ginuwine over this video. https://t.co/wntYra4YNf
