An Assateague pony recently gave a lifeguard a very rude reminder that that the island belonged to him, not the humans.
In a video posted to Facebook by park officials, a brown pony can be seen nuzzling through some beachgoers' belongings. A lifeguard approaches him, clapping a pair of flippers together in an attempt to scare him off.
But the pony's not having it. As the lifeguard walks away, the pony quickly spins around and kicks him in the chest, striking him repeatedly as he tumbles backwards a good 10 feet into the sand.
