OMG Ponies!

This is referencing the new Bella Sara card game and Ponystars online game.

I’ve never gotten why ponies/horses seem to be a primarily girl thing.  Or at least they seem to be marketed mostly to girls, though I remember watching and enjoying My Little Pony as a kid.  You can read about Tycho’s comment about it all here.

Is it because horses were mainly seen as a guy’s thing in the past (knights and cowboys) so this stuff became a sort of outlet for frustrated girls not being able/allowed to ride horses?  Or is it the magical fantasy worlds these horses tend to reside in?  But I like magical fantasy worlds too!  Though not usually this colorful :P.  Or maybe it’s just the Hallmark effect, and this is simply a manufactured desire.
