Southern, I don't know you from Adam's house cat, so saying part of my post is 'obnoxious' merely because you don't like how it's presented is silly.
I don't care about a horse being my BFF as long as he/she does what is asked with a pleasant temperament. Others may feel differently, but that doesn't make me wrong or obnoxious.
I have 3 horses I love dearly, one who is an ex-racer. Ex, because he was an abysmally bad racehorse. The good ones are rarely sold to the general public unless they've been injured and can no longer race.
I lost my 'heart horse' in 2007. He was an opinionated, snotty, spoiled, Arabian gelding who had been my constant companion for 21 years. Even though I loved him beyond reason, I never forgot he was a horse and expected him to act like one.
'Pocket Pony' isn't an endearment to me. All it means to me is that the animal has been allowed to become overly friendly and pushy. I freely admit when I was younger and more idealistic, I thought that was a good thing.
