"A Pony And His Boy: The Story of Berry and Josh"

Josh Martin recited the alphabet as he led the 28-year-old Shetland pony around the ring at the Equestrian Events Stables in Maple Park. A year ago, the 8 1/2-year-old Martin, who has Down syndrome, was afraid of all animals. The budding friendship between the St. Charles boy and the pony is the subject of an award-winning documentary, "A Pony And His Boy: The Story of Berry and Josh." No one is more surprised about the friendship between Berry and Josh than his mother, Julie Martin.
