Boy gets horse after selling $3,000 in lemonade

An Australian boy, who sold homemade lemonade for years to save up for a pet pony, broke down in tears when his mom surprised him with a brand new pony as a reward for all his hard work.

There's nothing 7-year-old Sabastian Lucas from Queensland loves more than ponies.

His mom, Juliana Kent, told that since Sabastian got on the back of an old pony when he was 4 years old, he's been asking every day whether they could get a family horse.

Instead of begging, the little equestrian-turned-entrepreneur decided he would work hard, and start saving to purchase the horse himself.

Like many kids his age, Sabastian decided to start his business venture with a simple lemonade stand. He, along with his mom, got to work cutting lemons, squeezing juice, and cooking it all together with sugar and syrup.

As he started gaining more momentum in his neighborhood, and even periodically selling out the batch, Sabastian grew his business to begin selling his products bottled, with a custom label.

He even expanded his business venture with bottled iced tea, and iced coffee.

Instead of splurging on the latest toy or fad, Sabastian stowed away all his earnings, and saved up money he received from the tooth fairy, and from Christmas presents.
