Shetland ponies? Those are clearly pit bulls.

One man’s grooming is another man’s incompetent cannibalism.

It takes a lot of work to get that “never been near a brush in my life” look.

Grooming? Looks more like ‘I’ve got an itchy nose, let’s find something rough to rub it against…Ah, that feels good!’

Also, the owner of these horses obviously has something against brushes.

I think it was Steven Wright who wondered aloud about breeding miniature Shetland ponies.

nice?

That’d be an ideal pet for all the Eohipsters out there.

I like to imagine that “Equus (Actual)” is the leader of a squad of Spec Ops’ Horses.

Shetland ponies are assholes. Fact.

Also, they like crisps.

All ponies are assholes, I believe. Shetland, Dartmoor, Exmoor, New Forest…

I wonder if they get hairballs, like cats?

Nope. Equines can’t vomit.

I had a roommate who had a shetland pony who was involved in a bizarre electrolysis accident, it was completely hairless except for its tail. He used to rent them out for Hari Krishna family picnics.

Honestly though shetland ponies are mean and slow, like the Chihuahua of the horse world. They are often the meanest horse around and they all have a Napoleon complex. Sorry if that sounds harsh, but, I have been bitten by too many of them.

They sound like cars. Maybe they’re a little hoarse.

…thank you, and goodnight.
