Who doesn't love ponies? They're little, they're sassy, and they eat about one quarter the amount of a full-size horse, making them a more affordable option for equine lovers around the world. Also, because they eat less, they poop less. If you have a small person, ponies are four legged doldrum-deleters! The first word that comes to mind with ponies is FUN. Ponies are fun to ride. Also, ponies are safer than you would think. They are bred to be vertically challenged, shortening the distance from the saddle to the ground. Ponies are also soft, making petting and brushing an enjoyable activity. Ponies are great teachers of respect, discipline, and responsibility. Even if the pony is a rotten little jerk who tries to bite and kick any humanoid in close proximity, he is still fun to look at from afar. Because… ponies.
