Ponies run loose near Florida highway

- It was an odd sight for South Florida motorists when ponies were running loose near the Florida Turnpike early Wednesday.

The ponies got loose and went running near the Turnpike and I-75 in Miami-Dade County, according to WSVN.

The Florida Highway Patrol helped to wrangle them up and get them back to safety. They were returned home and aerial video showed them appearing to be very excited about it, frolicking in the field and even rolling around in the dirt.
