Pony

 By Robert Laurence

Would you believe that the pony is related to the young chicken" It is, but only in language. Both words have their roots in the Latin word pullus, "a young animal," which yielded the French pouetl, a young fowl," this becoming the English pullet and the French poulenet, a young horse," which became the Scottish powney and then the English pony.
