Photo of the day: French ponies ride on trams
Amused (and confuses) commuters look on as a pony rides along on a tram in the French city of Dijon. But why was it there in the first place? Photo: Screengrab @MehdiGallois / Twitter

Last week we had llamas on trams, and now it's the turn of some other four-legged friends, it would seem, after commuters in Dijon snapped ponies taking a ride on the public transport system. But what were they doing there in the first place?

Last Monday The Local brought you the story (and the pictures) of Serge, a llama kidnapped by five drunken friends and taken on a late-night joyride on a tram in the south-western city of Bordeaux.

Well now it’s the turn of the ponies of Dijon to have their big day out, it would seem.

Being transported on Saturday through the eastern city to a demonstration against a mooted 20-percent hike in VAT on the equine sector, this pony appears – on close inspection – to have made a dirty protest of its own, so to speak.

While this specimen politely awaits his stop, presumably making awkward smalltalk with his bemused “neigh-bouring” passenger.
