On the Internet what comes around goes around, and sometimes it goes around again! We get the scoop on Glenn the Geek’s twice-over celebrity pony.
Horses in the Morning host Glenn the Geek posted this video of his rescued Hackney Pony, Scooter, having a grand time in a puddle last February and it immediately went viral, garnering some 34,000 shares and almost a million views.
Check it out!
Glenn was happy Scooter had his moment in the cyber-sun but figured that the video was a one-hit wonder… until he noticed it start popping up on his Facebook feed again over the weekend.
The video has now had over 92,000 shares, millions of views and 3,200 comments (and counting) — and to top it all off Horses in the Morning Facebook page has gotten over 8,000 new “likes.”
Celebrity status! Which is extra special considering that Scooter hasn’t always had a happy life. Glenn rescued Scooter in July 2013 after seeing him in a Craigslist ad.
Here are some photos of Scooter when Glenn first got him last June:
“He was a 1 on the Health Scale and really sick — we were not sure he was going to make it,” Glenn recalls. “With a lot of care, good food and love he has turned into a real fun pony and now he is really popular.”
Thank you, Glenn and Horses in the Morning, for sharing this video–and for opening your heart to an equine in need.
