Two ponies are the hit of social media after taking advantage of the nor'easter to make a break for it. The NYPD says the horses slipped away to take a jog through Staten Island and resident Maurice Leary says he's disappointed he didn't get to see them. Surprised spectators posted photos of their escape online.
The frosty jaunt came to an end when an off-duty copy lassoed them with a tow strap and tied them to a lamppost until their owners could be located.
