Meet Micky the miniature pony: The (maybe) oldest pet in Victoria

Happy birthday to Micky the miniature pony!

He might have bad teeth and arthritis but according to his owners he’s still going strong as he turns 43-years-old today – making him, we think, a contender for the oldest pet in Victoria.

“There’s a bit of contention as to whether he’s 42 or 43, we got him when he was 36,” Micky’s owner Louise Scott told Ross and John.

“He was used for pony rides at the Melbourne Zoo, way back, that was his first job.

“He’s nine hands.

“He’s got a little bit of arthritis but he’s going strong.

“Micky is a bit cunning, if he doesn’t want to be caught he’ll play a bit of a game.”
