Pedro is a little bit smaller than the other animals at the horse club.

Which is fine and everything, it's just he can't really see anything out of his stable door.

"Well, this sucks, stupid bloody stable door."

"Hey guys, what am I missing out on?"

"I feel like there's so much fun going on out there."

So during the February half term, kids at the Ebony Horse Club decided to come up with a solution to help Pedro out.

Some of the ideas were a little far-fetched, such as making Pedro stand on a bigger horse. Or is that a zebra? Hard to tell.

Or is that a zebra? Hard to tell.

Someone even suggested getting him a pair of high heels.

In the end though, they decided to go for the "Pedroscope", a specially made periscope.

Stockport-based design company Print and Cut helped create the device, the Manchester Evening News reported.“We got an email from the Ebony Horse Club who were asking for our help, it was so nice, and a little bit funny, that we decided to give it a go," the company's owner, Andy Morris, told the newspaper.

The Ebony Horse Club said in a blog post that the children loved showing Pedro how to use his new visual aid.

The club is now trying to raise money for a more permanent solution and is hoping to purchase a miniature stable for the popular Shetland pony.

Volunteer Susan Collins told BuzzFeed the club also needed Pedro's current stable for a larger horse.
