Well, you probably need to talk to Suburbanbanshee.

1 Aw, shucks....

Actually, I woke up from my first sleep, wondering all of a sudden how to say "My Little Pony" in Latin and what the etymology of "pony" is, and it kinda got more sleep-deprived from there.

2 So, basically, they discovered the first Roman Brony?

3 That is my fear.

The sad thing is that "Mannula Mea" actually scans to the theme song. Also, a "horse chestnut" is a large version of the regular chestnut, but a "pony keg" is a small keg.

4 Well, a Pony and a horse are not the same animal.  A Pony is smaller than a horse, thus a Pony keg is smaller. (Young horses are not ponies, but Colts and Fillies. I'm not sure what young ponies are.)

5 Ponies and horses are both Equus ferus caballus. So are "miniature horses." The only difference is one of breed; and ponies are perfectly interfertile with horses. (Albeit your pony stallion would need a boost up in order to "cover" a full-sized mare, I guarantee that his doohickey would be perfectly capable of doing the covering.)

Donkeys and zebras are more distant relatives. Donkeys are fertile enough with horses and ponies to create mules, but mules are sterile. Zebras aren't interfertile with either.
