    So Whats the difference between a pony and a miniature horse? Depends on who you talk to. Not much really. A pony is horse under 58 inches and they seem to become horses again when they are under 36 inches. Go figure! Drawn with technical pen and Painted with colors from Jennifer McLean’s new Schmincke palette (she sent me a dot card) on Hahnemühle’s cold-pressed watercolor card. instpony

    • What a cute face and looks so soft! Nicely done Sandra!

    • So sweet! I’ve noticed that miniature horses look like horses, whereas ponies have different features.

      • Thank you, Sharon! That’s the theory, but not always the reality. ‘Miniature’ sells better than ‘pony’, so I suspect the term is applied even when it shouldn’t be.

    • I like the colors you used and it looks like it has its winter coat still and ready to shed. I like the drawing too

    • Adorable! And so fluffy.

    • Nice, Sandra. Really like the texture and the colors.

    • Such a cutie. I was always under the impression that the difference lies in the proportions of the parts of the body.

      • Thank you, Shar! The theory is the proportions make the difference, but there are ponies (Welsh, etc) that would qualify as miniature horses under that definition, and miniature horses that definitely have the shorter legs and rounder torso that should make them ponies. I think what was originally expected and what markets better have collided. And honestly – I don’t think anyone really cares. They’re cute, whatever they’re called!

    • It’s so fluffy !
