First came the intersexed, seven-legged deer. Next came the four-legged duck. Then came the baryard of multi-legged animals. Then came the intersexed, seven-legged lamb.

Now, we have the Tootsie — formerly Amy — the intersex pony. Tootsie The Intersex PonyThe story is that the owner thought the pony was a mare for twelve years, but now Tootsie has made friends with a donkey named Derek. And…

The Shetland, who lived with a family for all his life, was only found to be different when he was taken in by the RSPCA. Vets are now carrying out blood tests to check Tootsie’s chromosome levels and determine his exact sex.

Despite his upbringing as a mare, Tootsie still has an eye for the ladies.

Could there be a story more important than this?
