HAY big spender, lend us a pony...

A police officer has caused hilarity online after taking a photo which appears to show his horse using a CASH MACHINE.

The Avon and Somerset copper rode his horse Jubilee near the ATM during a patrol in Nailsea over the weekend.

The cheeky horse trotted up to the machine for a close look, and his tickled rider took a snap.

Locals joked the horse was "financially stable" while the force said they think the horse is after a raise - in polos.

The force posted the pic on Facebook, with the caption: "We're not sure, but we think he may be trying to tell us he would like some more Polos... Captions please.

"Most likes wins."

One person wrote: "Thought I was more financially stable than that. I better rein it in."

Another added: "Jubilee is enjoying the higher pay since promotion but he's been saddled with a lot of extra work. Still, he's approaching the job with unbridled enthusiasm."

One wrote: "I should have a pony (£25) left in my bank account after hay (pay) day."

Another said: "Why the long face? Because I've got nothing in my bank account."

One said: "A tenner left til next week? Man-ure kidding me!!!"
