Pony Coco is visiting the city and causing quite a stir: It nibbles on Mum’s balcony flowers and takes the elevator instead of the stairs. Unlike the bus driver who refuses to let the pony on board, the children at the playground are very excited about Pony Coco. Everyone wants to pet it. But Coco prefers to sneak away to the fruit stall.
