A moonwalking Shetland pony who became an internet sensation has lost a paternity battle after leaving his partner to seek out a new mate.
Five-year-old Socks was put out to stud with three mares next to a loch but abandoned them after taking a shine to another filly called Kimberley on the other side of the water.
After he swam out to meet her, Kimberley gave birth to a black colt called Scamp and hair samples were sent to a DNA laboratory to determine his paternity.
But the results have confirmed that Socks, who shot to fame in a mobile phone advert in which he danced to the Fleetwood Mac song Everywhere, is not the father.
And to add insult to injury, it has appeared that another stallion might have stolen his ladies man crown.
In a twist the ponies owner likened to an episode of the Jeremy Kyle show, Scamps father turned out to be Nuggett, who not only impregnated Kimberley but also appears to have had his wicked way with Felicity, one of Sockss mares, who has since given birth to a colt named Scallywag.
Mari Williamson, who runs the 200-acre Benston stud farm on Shetland, said Socks had been unlucky in love. "Socks is a bit of a Casanova, but Nuggett has beaten him to it, she said.
He was quicker off the draw with Kimberley and with Felicity too. The other mare he was with may or may not be pregnant. We will have to wait and see.

Now THAT is a pony. And anyone not agreeing is a racist traitor to America.

That’s one bad ass pony!
LOL, I had to look that up. I posted it for Norm. I have never seen My Little Pony.
Fluttershy: There can be only one pony.
