Little enough

Okay, they say “My Little Pony.” How little are we talking here?

How about three feet, eight inches?

The Great and Powerful and Life-Size Trixie

This is The Great and Powerful Trixie, as recently sculpted in plush by ~PatNintendoGuy on deviantArt, and it says here that she’s life-size.

In our world, a pony stands 14.2 hands — 58 inches — or less. So “little” would seem to be appropriate. I’m waiting for suitably scaled stallions, who tend to be taller than mares, or (dare I hope?) Princess Celestia or Luna.

Addendum: I seem to have (almost) anticipated this:

“Miss Sparkle, may I have the honor of this dance?”

I’d never seen a pony curtsy before. “Of course you may,” she said, and to my surprise, she planted both front hooves on my shoulders, putting her at an angle where she could look me straight in the eye.

It was a slow dance, okay?

    Actually, three feet, eight inches is a bit taller than I picture what they’d actually be. For some reason, I picture them (if they actually existed in our world…) as being slightly less than hip-height on me at the shoulder – maybe about 30″.

    Not sure where I get that but that’s what I “see.” I guess I am going by the mini-ponies I have seen, which sometimes serve as service animals and such.

    Miss Sparkle dances very well for someone born with two left feet. :P

    Better — or at least no worse — than I.
