  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

Henry was meant to be a miniature pony - but he was getting bigger and bigger by the minute.

The owners of the two-foot tall pony just couldn't figure out why he had become so bad-tempered, until they noticed his stomach was all bloated.

It wasn't the result of eating too much hay, however, that was causing the problem, but Henry's strange habit of swallowing sand.

That is one cute pony. At first when I seen the headlines I thought a pit of sand was swallowing the poor thing.
Anyways it is nice to see the little guy recovering.
