New Yorkers are seeing an increase in homeless ponies due to the recession. The ponies, formerly owned by spoiled Upper West Side girls, are now sleeping on city sidewalks.
Distraught families who bought ponies for their little girls during the boom, have had to let the ponies go, abandoning the animals outside their Manhattan coops. The ponies are causing a ruckus where many lay on the sidewalks drunk yelling out the names of their former owners. “Abigail!” “Abigail!” or “Brittany!” “Brittany!”
Mayor Bloomberg said he may convert empty luxury condos in the area to shelter stalls for the ponies.
