The pony which saved a little girls life
A small pony, belonging to a gentleman in Warwickshire, was fed in a
park through which a canal passes. It was a great favourite, having been
long kept in the family, and was ridden by the children. A little girl - the
daughter of the owner of the property - had run out by herself into the
park and made her way to the banks of the canal.
As she was playing near the water, she fell in. Her cries were heard by
the pony, which, galloping forward, plunged into the water, and lifting her
in his mouth, brought her to the shore.
