Two determined ponies in New York City braved the elements Tuesday morning during the biggest storm of the season when their barn door apparently blew open, authorities said.The four-legged fugitives were seen prancing around one of the busiest roads in Staten Island in the midst of winter storm Stella, sending residents scrambling to snap photos and alert police.Staten Island Community Education Council President Mike Reilly posted a photo of the ponies crossing in front of a bus that quickly picked up hundreds of shares.
Something you don’t see or hear about … often,” he wrote on Facebook.
Other residents made a public plea to come to the aid of the tiny animals. “Help!! Ponies are on the loose,” wrote resident Tammie True-Fried on Facebook.
