Kirk Petrakis at The Drum Inn in Cockington, Devon, with his miniature Shetland pony Patrick. See SWNS story SWPLpony; A miniature Shetland pony born on St Patrick's Day has become a regular at his local pub and pops in daily - for a GUINNESS. Stout-loving equine Patrick, aptly named as he was born on March 17, often turns heads during visits to the boozer with his owner. Kirk Petrakis, 42, said his four-hoofed friend stands calmly at the bar at the Drum Inn to enjoy his daily tipple of Guinness. It even has a carrot as his pub snack of choice. He has become such a familiar face in the village pub at Cockington, Devon, that a special second birthday party will be held this month. Kirk said: "The daily pub visit is all part of his routine and is his highlight. He likes a sip of Guinness and he has a carrot - that's it. "It's a special treat for him. We decided on Guinness as he was born on St Patrick's Day.
