Lauren Mesaros had three horses she needed to evacuate from her Santa Rosa property, but only had a trailer big enough for two.
After loading her two mares into a friend’s trailer, she realized there wasn’t enough room for her pony, Stardust.
With the help of her friend Carol Spears, who Mesaros calls “a horse whisperer,” Stardust was lured into the backseat of Mesaros’ 2001 Honda Accord with a carrot.
“He actually walked right into the car like a dog would,” said Mesaros.
A neighbor took a picture of the sight, and Mesaros’ sister-in-law posted it to Facebook.

The only real damage was done to her Honda Accord.
“My car will never smell the same again,” said Mesaros. “It’s a little funky in the backseat but [Stardust] survived.”
