Pedro, a 14-year-old Shetland pony, knows the feeling. He's a newcomer to the Ebony Horse Club, a mentor program in London that teaches kids equestrian skills. They want to make him "happy and accepted," said Martina Burrell, a volunteer and parent of one of the children in the club, in a YouTube video about Pedro.
"We think animals are stupid, but they're really not," she said. "Poor Pedro's stuck in there, going, 'What's going on with the rest of the world? And I can't see nothing!'"
Pedro, luckily, has a group of creative chums - the kids in the club - who came to his aid. Their whimsical proposals included high heels and a balloon harness, but the design that became a reality was a touch more practical and less Narnian: a pony periscope.
