A young girl was reunited with her Shetland pony Friday after it was found wandering the streets of Riverside County last week.
Blossom, the 16-year-old miniature horse, was picked up from a Jurupa Valley property last week just before the Thanksgiving holiday. She was being kept at a Riverside County Animal Services shelter when employees couldn't locate the owners.
"I was asleep and was wondering what was going on, then I discovered the horse in our yard," resident Edith Hernandez said.

When the owners realized Blossom was missing, they and their neighbors posted fliers and were eventually reunited with their horse.
Nine-year-old Jolette Rodriguez identified the pony as her own. On Friday, she told the Los Angeles Times she was "very, very, very happy."
