cowsay reimplemention for ponies

Ponysay displays an image of a My Little Pony pony saying a message provided by the user in a terminal, or a quote from the show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (MLP:FiM). Historically ponysay was a wrapper for cowsay, but has since version 2.1 become an independent reimplementation of cowsay.

Basic usage:

ponysay [option...] [message]

ponysay.ponythink [option...] [message]
