The festive season is almost upon us and tonight we brought you North Yorkshire's very own version of a Christmas story.
Two ponies found abandoned on an industrial estate have been rescued by a teenager and her family.
They have offered them a stable because the local sanctuaries are full.
You can watch the full report from Claire Montgomery below.
The season of goodwill has already begun in North Yorkshire for two unlikely suspects reminiscent of a particularly festive story.
Mary and Joseph were abandoned on an industrial estate and were rescued by a teenager and her mother when rescue centres said they had no room to house the two ponies.
14-year-old Cressida Killick adopted the female Shetland pony and the black and white cob after finding that they had been abandoned without food or water by the driver of a transit van.
The two new arrivals are being well looked after in their new home by Cressida and her friends and family.
