There are some people that treat their beloved pets as fully-fledged family members — complete with bedroom, bathroom, living room, and kitchen privileges. Most of the time, that kind of special treatment is reserved for dogs and cats.

But for one family in Northwich, Cheshire, a tiny Shetland pony gets to live the good life among humans (although, it’s only because of the family’s toddler).

Three-year-old Harriet loves her pony, Wicked, with all of her heart. They ride together, show together, and have fun together. So, it’s no surprise when mom Helen Mylott discovered Harriet and Wicked doing something incredibly odd in the bathroom.

When Helen heard a commotion coming from the family bathroom, she peered in and discovered the strangest sight: her daughter, dressed in rubber boots and her swimsuit, was giving the black pony a bath.

It seemed Wicked felt a little guilty, getting slightly anxious as he was discovered by mom. But, Harriet wasn’t about to give up!

She continued laughing, smiling, and washing her pony until she was squeaky clean.

Harriet was even kind enough to dry him off after the (extremely messy) shower.

It’s no wonder these two are best friends — they must get into all kinds of trouble together!
