Bush trackers find Shetland pony who went missing from outback SA station for three days

Cheeto, a mischievous Shetland pony, had just arrived at his new home at remote Nonning Station in South Australia's Gawler Ranges when he went missing last week.

The five-year-old pony had been a Christmas present from the station's managers Sarah and Bill Filmer for their granddaughter.

"Cheeto had only been at Nonning Station … for four days when he decided to go on a big adventure and escape from my garden and tennis court," Mrs Filmer said.

On Thursday morning, Cheeto dug a hole near the tennis court just big enough to squeeze through.

He headed south from there, towards the town of Iron Knob.

From there it is thought he smelled water and turned west.
