    It's a pony, not a horse, I think?

    Officially, what's the difference between a pony and a horse, anyone?

    Awwww. Were they using the bathtub as a trough, I wonder?

    We have horses, and I have asked my daughter the differences between horses and ponies (she's the horse person, not me).....I think they're just....smaller. I used to think they were baby horses lol. But they are not :). Those are foals, as I'm sure we all know.

    Taller than 14.2 feet? It's a horse. Smaller? It's a pony. :)

    I mistook an old, grumpy Shetland pony for a baby horse ( sorry, foal :) ) once. It bit me for feeding it a carrot. Horse bites really hurt!

    I think she means hands, not feet? Horses are measured in hands. My Belgian is 18 hands.
