Boos told local news outlet WGME that Juliet threw her head up and snatched away her lead rope from the child before running off. For three to four hours, Juliet ran free through roads and orchards, WGME reported. A helicopter was even called in to help track down the runway horned pony.
But no one got even close to wrangling her up. As it turns out, so much time had passed that Juliet became desperate for one single thing.
"That's the nature of horses," Renee Pardy, whose horse, Shady, is friends with Juliet, told WGME. "They want to be in a group, they're herd animals and so we had been chasing Juliet the unicorn for so long that she was looking for a friend."
It was only when Pardy rode her horse, Shady, near the pony that Juliet was comfortable enough to be led into a trailer.
