The difference between a horse and a pony is the size. Equine animals are measured from their withers down. Horses and ponies are measured in hands. Each hand is the equivalent to 4 inches, which is the approximate size of a grown man's hand. Technically, a horse has to be 14.2hh or higher when they're full grown to be considered a horse. Anything below that is a pony.

--Elephants can smell water up to 3 miles away. They are also one of the three mammals that undergo menopause – the other two being humpback whales and human females. --Ostriches can run faster than horses, and the male ostriches can roar like lions!! --Beavers’ teeth never stop growing, they must constantly gnaw on objects to keep them at a manageable length. Their teeth would eventually grow into their brain if they didn’t maintain them.

A whale and a human very close to touching. Really shows how massive whales can be. I like that the human is in the whale's environment and the whale is perfectly fine with that. I bet you won't find many humans okay with small creatures they're don't know being in their space.
