The advert aired last week and has sparked an emotional reaction on social media with people stating the pony was “melting” their hearts.

“Luckily his owner comes to the rescue with a clever new purchase using Amazon Prime’s One-Day Delivery. Remember, whatever the situation you find yourself in, there are “Millions of ways to save the day, delivered in one day”,” said a spokesman for Amazon.
