The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 8, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta W4 TMII Shetland pony enjoys Arctic life AKLAVIK, N.W.T. (CP) During a guided tour by truck of this Eskimo com- munity the Mountie driver suddenly shouted and jerked the vehicle to a halt. Cpl. Bill Bull stopped in front of his RCMP office. "I have to show you our he said. came the dis- believing chorus from within the truck. It was 20 below zero and Aklavik ISO miles above the Arctic Circle. The group frankly didn't believe there was a horse in town. "There he the cor- poral beamed, pointing to something on four legs at the snow behind :ice. It was a Shetland pony named Pinto. The corporal said it wasn't actually his horse, but he didn't have the heart to say it couldn't graze on what was left of his grass under the snow. The animal is actually the property of Rudy Tor- no w, an oil agent who bought it two years ago in Edmonton. He had it flown north so his two sons could ride around this settle- ment of 729. Now Pinto wanders around Aklavik looking for scraps of food. All the children have a chance to ride him. "He's very says Mr. Tornow. "He's just like a dog." In fact, Pinto's best friend is a dog, a large Labrador named Brandy who tries to keep back other dogs in the communi- ty who don't want to allow the plodding gourmet to make his scavenging rounds in peace: "Once in a while, Pinto comes to my office and knocks on the door and tries to open it says Mr. Tornow. "Once in a while I let him in. "But I've got a new of- fice now and he can't get in because he has to climb stairs and he doesn't like that." Staying outside in the howling Arctic winter doesn't seem to bother Pinto much. "I've tried to put him in the garage once in a while when it gets really cold. But he prefers it outside."
