If you’re a miniature horse, 2016 might be your year!
First, a miniature horse featured prominently in a Real Housewives of Beverly Hills storyline. Consummate animal lover Lisa Vanderpump traveled all the way to a miniature horse farm to adopt a new family pet.
Then on Monday’s premiere of The Bachelor, one hopeful woman arrived with her pet pony in tow.
But no reality-TV plotline can match the real life drama that went down across the pond in Trowbridge, England, when a miniature horse named Harvey learned how to open the gate of his paddock.
It appears Harvey had smarts, but he also had big plans. Upon opening the gate, Harvey ran away from home and attempted to make a new one for himself at the local fire department.
When Trowbridge firefighters discovered Harvey in the fire station’s yard on Monday morning, they took to Twitter to investigate.
Harvey was safely returned to his home, which is just up the road from the fire station. But we’ve got to say, we’re a little disappointed that he wasn’t allowed to pursue his dreams.
Keep fighting the good fight, Harvey. We have a feeling your day is coming.
