Shaikh Hamdan wants you to name this pony

Shaikh Hamdan posted this picture of the foal on his Instagram Stories.

Dubai: UAE residents, you now have a new neighbour (pun intended).

He’s a furry brown foal, with boundless energy, and Shaikh Hamdan Bin Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai Crown Prince and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council, wants you to name him!

On Thursday, Shaikh Hamdan posted a picture and video of the little horse on his instagram, with the caption: “A joyful pony, full of life, is looking for a name. What should we call him?”

Within minutes, suggestions started pouring in on instagram, as social media users shared names in both Arabic and English.

The video racked up half a million views in 20 hours, and had over 36,500 comments.

Some opted for obvious choices like ‘Brownie’ and ‘Sunny’.

Instagram user @meirahhh wrote: “Can we call him Lollipop because he is just so sweet?”
