Here’s how to stirrup some festive emotion: mini-horse ad goes viral
A hearwarming TV ad from Horse & Country TV has received key regional exposure today.
The 40-second commercial captures the real-life bond between “inseparable ponies” Albert and Ernie as they celebrate the occasion.
It shows Albert, the older horse, gently waking his companion on Christmas morning and leading him into the house to give him his present.

The touching story of their enduring friendship has captured the public’s imagination and “The best horsey Christmas ad ever” has drawn almost 459,000 viewers since it was aired on Facebook last week. It has also created a buzz on social media with more than 33,000 Facebook shares, likes and tweets in the last week alone.
