Who Says Big is Better?

No one ever taught me that being little made me less than another pony.  All of my herd family were small – and a lot of the predators we faced were really BIG.  So I learned early that my size had little to do with what I can do in this world.

Some people think it's funny that I play so much with horses that are bigger than me.  Heck, my best friends are almost twice my size.  So what? Big isn't better - it's just Big!

Just because I’m little doesn’t mean I don’t have my own power.   Even in the face of something bigger than me, I still have myself and my own gifts. And that's the best thing to have - of all.

I can be persistent - I can try and try and try until I succeed.  After all, success isn’t about how big you are, it’s about how well you apply yourself to the task at hand.  Even a little mustang can make a scary giant think twice when he keeps trying!

Speaking of scary giants – those giants can be big kids around us – or they can be big fears that control us.  It doesn’t matter what the giant is. I’ve learned that you just have to have the courage to stand up to that  big scary thing.  Once you take the first step from fear into courage – it’s never as scary, or big, as it seemed.

Sometimes I feel overwhelmed by all of the big changes in my life. And that makes me feel really small.  But I'm not small - I'm me.  And even though there are changes all around, changes that feel pretty big to me, those changes don't make me any less of a horse - just like your life changes don't make you any less of a kid.   We're all big in our hearts and spirits - and that is what matters.

So forget all this stuff about being Big.  Justg becuase someone is bigger than you - it doesn't mean they are any better.  Not even.

    Pony - is still quite popular entertainment by teenage girls! All the same, the training and education of small ponies can be quite time-consuming and difficult process, but if the animal feels the love - then it becomes a matter of time!
