It seems as if the saga of West Alabama's runaway pony has finally come to an end. The good news is, the ending is a happy and heart-warming one.


Recently, the Tuscaloosa Police Department shared news of a recent hilarious situation that led to an "arrest" in Alberta.

"We've found the owners of the runaway pony from last week, and learned that his name is Knight and he's around four years old," the Tuscaloosa Police Department posted on social media.

The pony has been staying at Therapeutic Riding of Tuscaloosa since its capture last week while police searched for the owner of the pony.

TPD announced that the pony who we've come to know as Ginuwine but real name is Knight has found his permanent home at TROT.

"The non-profit organization will keep him at their farm in Cottondale, where they offer riding lessons as therapy for children and adults with disabilities."

The public will have a chance to meet the local celebrity during TROT's Easter Egg Hunt happening in Cottondale on Saturday April 1st starting at 2p.

Not long ago, TPD shared that they received a call about a small pony loitering near 30th Avenue East and First Street East in Alberta.

According to the Facebook post, three officers engaged in a low-speed pursuit where they followed the pony up and down driveways, and through backyards for close to two hours.


The hilarious "mugshot" of Ginuwine was shared and a star was born.
