A group of schoolchildren from Brixton, south London, have come up with an innovative way of allowing a local Shetland pony to see above his stable, by designing him a periscope.

Pedro the Shetland pony, of the Ebony Horse Club charity stables, was previously unable to see above his stable doors due to his small size.

As part of a local half-term project, schoolchildren came up with ideas for how to deal with Pedro's problem and allow him to see other animals at the stables. In the end they decided on the periscope, or 'Pedroscope' as a solution.

With the help of Stockport based print company, Print & Cut, they were able to turn the design into a reality.

The periscope will provide a stop-gap solution for Pedro whilst the charity tries to raise the £700 needed to provide the Shetland pony with a new miniature stable with a lower door.

To donate to the Ebony Horse Club and help raise money for Pedro's new stable text PONY44 with the amount you would like to give to 70070 e.g 'PONY44 £5'.
