BERLIN, Dec. 17 (UPI) -- A German girl whose pony became an online celebrity with a YouTube video of the animal riding a train said the pony also visited a McDonald's and a store.

The 16-year-old owner, who identified herself as Frauke, said a friend stood her up at a train Station outside of Berlin Friday so she decided to board the train with Seppi the Shetland pony and take a trip into the city, The Local.de reported Monday.

"Everyone was taking photos or stroking Seppi. Because it was so funny I just kept travelling," Frauke said.

Frauke said she met up with a friend and took Seppi on a small Berlin tour that included a McDonald's restaurant and an H&M store, where she and the pony were asked to leave.

A YouTube video of the pony on the train during the pair's ride home had amassed more than 300,000 views as of Monday.
