Thanks to Jessica and Billy and Rob and Gracie and Terry and Z P and Holly for this. Yesterday some Craigslist ad popped up with a Long Island firefighter wanting to give away his mini horse for free. This was awesome news to me, a Brooklyn resident, and I immediately began seeing if my apartment could hold a large-enough pen.
And then smrtmnky chimed in and let me know if was a prank and a fake posting. You have no ideas the highs and lows associated with the facts of this story. Now I have to go back and double check every other Craigslist mini pony we've come across.
