Shetland Pony Adventures!

I discovered Kate  Beaton‘s “Shetland Pony Adventure” comic strip last year and immediately printed it out to add to my fridge door (under the whinnying horse magnet my mother bought me the other Christmas). I didn’t realise that this was only the first installment! Lisa keyed me in. More Shetland Pony Adventures can be found here, here and here. There’s a rough linking plot about the pony fatly and silently arriving in a fairytale kingdom and answering everyone’s prayers in the worst possible way by eating everything indiscriminately.

Some of the earlier strips are no longer on line, but I was delighted to discover that not only can you buy Shetland Pony figurines, but also watch the pony in a TV cartoon called Adventure Time.
