Indiana deputy corrals pair of escaped ponies

An Indiana sheriff’s deputy put his cowboy skills to the test when he was called out to corral a pair of escaped ponies.

The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post that Deputy Josh Boller responded to a report of loose horses in the Reelsville area and arrived to find a pair of small ponies wandering around without a human escort.

Boller rounded up the two loose equines and returned them to their pen.

“There is no such thing as a routine call, and that rural deputy life sure does bring some unique calls,” the sheriff’s office said.
