Sabastian Kent had been selling lemonade for two years to buy a pony, managing to save $3,000 (US $2,285), said his mother, Juliana Kent.
She filmed the moment that Sabastian, her oldest son, was taken to the family's red barn to see his prize -- a white pony named "Tom Boy."
As soon as he saw it, Sabastian turned around, crying happy tears, and hugged his father.
"What do you think?" his mother asked.
"It's awesome," Sabastian said as he wiped away tears.
