Meet the pony who loves nothing more than scoffing a Pot Noodle as his MANE meal, before washing it down with orange juice.

Four-year- old Magic is a sucker for the instant snack as he hates to wait FUR-LONG, writes Max Evans.

The 38-inch Kingsgate native discovered he preferred the ramen-style pot to hay when he snatched a bite from his owner Zoe Foulis.

Zoe, 20 of The Ridgeway, Margate, said: "I gave him a little bit to try and he loved it. He will even eat if from the fork. He'll eat and drink most things – crisps, orange juice and tea from a carton.

"He's a real character. He's extremely friendly and playful."

Magic's favourite flavour is chicken and mushroom, but he is also partial to the beef and onion, sweet and sour and the ultra-hot Bombay Bad Boy.

Animal mad Zoe, who works part-time at a pet store, keeps 120 rabbits, 40 guinea pigs and two zebra mice.

Zoe cares for another pony and horse with her mum, cleaner Linda Gray, 46, 

But Magic is the pair's most eccentric furry friend.

She said: "The other night he got out and ate a whole bag of pears. He chases foxes out of the fields. He's got a real thing about foxes."

The hungry pony has doubled in size since Zoe took him on more than three years ago. Now he weighs about 180 kilograms.

Zoe said: "The only things he doesn't like are tomatoes and shortbread."

She is hoping Magic will become a father after mating with his missus, Seabird, who lives in the same stable in George Hill Road.
