A Wee Itty Bitty Pony Ditty

The bonny pony from near Glasgoo
Aye, she kinna take much moo.
If she dinna pluck her auld eye broos
She’d look aboot like a highland coo.

Cheerioo, suvodeb



  1. Will CO accept my Scottish dialect suggestion? 🙂

    Made me think of this story:
    ‘Sausage-pony’ prompts 999 calls


  7. But, where are his knees?!


  9. Yet another place in the world where I would be unable to stop prancing around, singing the My Little Pony themesong.

  10. Och, the wee shaggy oatmeal-eater!
    Ack, the twee Scottish poetry attempt!
    It Burns, it Burns!

  13. *golf clap*

  14. Wee, shaggy, ‘tudinous beastie,
    We hae for ye an oaten feastie
    Thou need na luik sae stinkin’ feisty
    As if for battle!
    I wad be laith ere to mistake thee,
    For Hielan’ cattle!


  15. *wipes eye, raises glass of Scotch*

  16. Irish horses, however, are a different matter.

  17. You kilt me with that one, lassie.

  18. *golf clap* x 2

  19. Your ditty is brilliant 🙂 Nice goooin’ lad.

  20. 😯

  21. LOL!

  22. Flip I love that show. lol!

  23. I thought what a pretty horse! Then I started scrolling down and started cracking up.

  24. Red Toenails says:

    Pony: too cute. You guys: too funny.

  25. Fird Birfle says:

    I will add my response, to Gigi’s: 😯

    (with the additional observation, however, that
    the Irish pony in question is actually quite a lovely fellow/ “lil’ lady” …..)

  26. Three *golf claps* a charm! Yah clever bonnie lass!

  27. Fird Birfle says:

    (please consider this as a corollary to the dialogue from the 1920s novel and 1940s film Treasure/ Sierra Madre… approximately “badges??? We don’ need no stinkin’ BADGES….”; which an article in Wikip. states, is inaccurate in re. the original novel)

    ” ‘KNEES’ “????? WE don’ need no stinkin’ KNEES!!!!111!!!!”

  28. Must have wee pony.

  29. A nice single malt. My favorite is Oban. 😀

  30. Lol! That’s a lovely horse, Dougal, but first: just play the fe-in’ note!

    8) 8)

    I’m not going to be able to sleep after that chuckle.

  32. me too! 😀

  33. I’ll take mine neat, thanks….

  34. cellarmouse says:

    thank you for taking time to share the proper dialectical expression, but this is CO, and we pretty much will go for a good 4-line rhyme over properness..

  35. Aye, lassie; I unnerstand all the wee ditty except the last word . . . Highland coo?

    If take much moo= take much more; then Highland coo= Highland core? Nay . . . and I have a bit o’ Scots blood runnin’ through me veins, too . . . not tae be confuse with Scotch blood, which I may have had a time or tae, also, in me younger days.

  36. Heeland coo=Highland cow. They look like Neanderthal coos, er, cows.

  37. A Highland Coo fer ye.

  38. Fird Birfle says:


    He/ she’ s so marvelously shaggy
    and sssssssoooooooooo cuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuute !!!

    It’s Emo Cow —
    (or perhaps Emo Bull; I’m not motivated to analyze the bits & pieces) !!!!

  39. QuietDesperation says:

    OMG, that messy mane! Someone call Rarity!

  40. That’s what I call a Shetland PUNY.

  41. victoreia says:

    They be big auld horns, no?

  42. victoreia says:

    See, I always hear that line as done in Blazing Saddles…..

  43. cute bangs on that one!

  44. The city’s pretty gritty for an itty bitty pretty … pony

    paraphrased from the Flight of the Conchords appearance on The Simpsons

  45. He is really sweet! Enjoyed spending a little time with him. Beautiful markings. Looks happy. Thanks so much for sharing him!

  46. Aye, thank ye! Who knew there were shaggy coos?

  47. Thanks, Meliss, me lass . . . they do have that “out of the mists of time” air about them.

  48. Its like…a welsh corgi pony!
