Like most kids, Sabastian Kent wanted a pony, so the seven-year-old Australian boy spent three years selling lemonade to raise $2,285 to buy one. His mom, Juliana posted a video to Facebook that shows her son going nuts when he finally met his pony Tom Boy for the first time, saying “It’s awesome!”
Sabastian’s parents say he became a little celebrity because he sold so much lemonade to reach his goal.
Some people even helped him out by paying him $20 or even $100 for it to help add to his pony fund. The little boy also saved his birthday, Christmas, and Tooth Fairy money to raise the money he needed.
Now Sabastian knows he’s going to need money to buy a saddle and pay for Tom Boy’s veterinary care, so he says he’ll “get back to making lemonade to pay for that.”
