The Pretty Little Filly With The Ponytail

Album: b-side of "Mister Ed" (1961)

Songfacts®:

  • This was recorded by singer-songwriter Sheldon Allman as the B Side of "Mister Ed". It was performed in the TV series by the horse's owner, architect Wilbur Post, probably the only time in history that someone has lip-synched to a horse!
    Allman is said to have written a longer version of this song but it does not appear to have been recorded. >>
