Missing pony swept away in floods miraculously finds own way home
An elderly pony swept away by floodwater in New Zealand has incredibly found her way home after she was missing for two weeks.
Voice, a 20-year-old bay thoroughbred mare, was last seen being swept away after torrential rain hit the North Island city of Auckland, Stuff NZ reports.
The pony miraculously found her own way home after 13 days missing, eventually turning up near the same spot she was last seen.
Liz Currie, who looks after the horses, said she did not know where the pony has been for the past two weeks.
"Where she came from, I have no idea, because we’ve scoured every part of that river over and over again."
She explained: "She’s obviously been stuck on a bank somewhere because she was a real mess.
"I’ve given her a bath to try and get some of the mud and that off her, but it’s all river sand."
She said her return was "unbelievable", adding: "I think she might have just earned herself a very long retirement."
Kathy Brown posted on another Facebook group added: "It is with the utmost pleasure I can announce the elderly mare missing since the flood nearly two weeks ago has been found alive and mostly well today.
"Thank you to all those who shared. If only horses could talk, I would love and loathe to hear her story."
