• Story: Mating Customs of Species Equus parvus

    [Slice of Life]

    Author: D. G. D. Davidson
    Description: Abstract: In his final and most personal monograph, a prolific and widely celebrated ethnologist and hippologist describes the customs of the Little Ponies (sp. Equus parvus) related to courtship and matrimony. Topics covered include sudden-onset equine infatuation (SOEI), typical courtship behaviors, the prominent role of the equine matchmaker, and the rituals of equine marriage.

    But this study moves beyond a mere description of pony culture. It reflects also on the interactions between pony and human--and on what those interactions mean for the future of the human race.
