What is the issue?
Would you rather someone said equine?
If you are so darn sensitive that you have to point out in capitals that you have a PONY, I truly wonder if you are old enough to have an account.
People call my 17hh Ben a pretty pony, they also used to call little 'Lena all of 13.2hh a pony, but she is in fact a Haflinger HORSE.
I've posted pics of my new mares and people look at the pics and say "Oh HE is nice"
I don't get my panties in a bunch, it matters no a jot what others say, I know what they are and that is all that matters. If you are going to survive and make some friends here, I would suggest a sense of humor, and a thicker skin, or you are going to go crazy in short time
