Scottish Woman Moves Pony Into House

STORNOWAY, Scotland, Jan. 12 (UPI) — A Scottish woman said her Connemara pony is “very happy” to be living in the downstairs part of her house.

Stephanie Noble, 65, said the owner of the land where the mare, named Grey Lady Too, previously grazed left the pony on her lawn in the Western Isles on Christmas Eve after a personal falling out and she has since moved the animal into her home, The Daily Telegraph reported Wednesday.

Noble, who said she braced her ceilings, added a gate to contain the animal and transformed her kitchen into a grain store, said she is not bothered by complaints from neighbors or the urging of the Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals to hand the pony over to the organization.

“If I want to even keep an elephant in the house I can,” she said. “I have had nothing but stick from people because it is unconventional.”

“Grey Lady Too is very happy. She goes out to the lawn, though she has eaten a couple of the neighbor’s plants, and comes back in by herself,” Noble said. “The situation is not ideal, but it is safe and secure for her.”

Gill MacGregor of the SSPCA said the group hopes “Ms. Noble finds the appropriate livery for her pony so that they can remain together but, in the event that this does not happen, we hope she will consider our offer in the best interests of the animal.”
